Now for our update:
The suspect 29-year-old Mr. Lee Yamadi, a Thai-Iranian national, turned himself in to Pattaya Police at 11 AM today, June 5th, after brutally stabbing his Iranian friend identified later as Mr. Nime Khakbaz, 40, and stealing his motorbike on Soi Jomtien 13 in the Nongprue sub-district of Banglamung district, Chonburi province.
He brought with him the weapon of assault, a sharp 15-cm-long metal object, to surrender to police.
During an initial interrogation, Mr. Lee confessed to stabbing Mr. Nime claiming they had gone to buy fried chicken together on a motorbike. While making the purchase, Mr. Nime allegedly made a derisive remark about Mr. Lee, calling him a slang word for a female dog after paying for the chicken for him.
After completing the purchase, they both rode on a motorcycle together and bitterly argued throughout the journey. The suspect then told his friend to stop the vehicle before using the sharp object to stab him. He then fled the scene to seek help from his relatives and decided to surrender himself.
Mr. Lee was charged with attempted murder. He is undergoing legal process and being detained as of press time.
