A homeless man has sustained injuries after he was attacked by a younger homeless teen in the Pattaya area.
Emergency responders were notified of the incident on Friday (May 5th) near an abandoned house in Soi Thep Prasit 17 in Nongprue. They and the Pattaya News arrived at the scene to find an unidentified homeless man aged around 50 bleeding heavily.
Four severe wounds were found on the homeless man’s shoulder and head. He was taken to a nearby hospital for medical assistance.
A witness, identified only as Mrs. Aoi, 48, told the Pattaya News that the injured man asked a homeless teenager to fix a bicycle but came off as threatening to the suspect, which turned into a verbal and then physical altercation involving glass bottles and a knife.
The Pattaya News noted that there were now four incidents recently which have involved homeless people fighting in Pattaya and city officials have said this has become a serious issue.
In another incident a homeless man was seriously injured by a homeless woman with a knife, with both parties having very different stories.
