UPDATE: Police Arrest Pattaya Youngster for Using Explosives to Attack Rivals

Pattaya —

Police officers from the Banglamung police station arrested a Thai 18-year-old teen for using explosives to attack his rivals near the railway track road on July 19th, 2023. The man was charged with attempted murder and illegal possession of weapons.

First our previous story:

A group of teenagers in Pattaya attacked their rivals with guns and explosives at 4 AM this morning, July 19th. Two males, one only 14-years-old, were shot and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Now for our update:

The arrest was made at a house in the Aue Arthorn Housing Estate in the Nong Mai Kaen area, Pattaya, on Tuesday, July 25th, when the police swooped in on a man named Mr. Singchai ‘Note’ Phusit for his alleged involvement in a shooting that left two teenage boys injured.

According to the police, the motivation behind the shooting stemmed from an incident on the night of July 18th, one day before the shooting. While Singchai and his group of friends were sitting by Pattaya Beach, they were attacked by a group of 7-8 teenagers.

After the incident, Singchai and his friends discussed the matter and discovered the identity of the attackers. Subsequently, they gathered together and prepared Molotov cocktails and firearms to seek revenge against the attackers. They eventually encountered the attackers near the railway road and chased them down on motorbikes, throwing Molotov cocktails and shooting at them.

Police revealed a man named “Ice” was the one shooting the gun, while Singchai so far only admitted that he accompanied his friends but did not do anything.

Nevertheless, the police pressed charges of attempted murder and illegal possession of weapons against Singchai before taking him into custody. The authorities are expanding an investigation to find the firearm used in the incident. 18 suspects have been apprehended so far, according to the police.
