A homeless man was beaten to death in Rayong province, South of Pattaya, allegedly by a group of unidentified men, after he reportedly flashed his genitals and masturbated in front of female beach-goers.
The victim could not be identified as he did not carry any legal documents, rescue workers stated after coming to his aid on PMY Beach yesterday, July 27th. He was around 30-40 years old and believed to be a Thai national.
The rescue workers collected a blue shirt, belonging to an unreported person, from the incident scene. The victim was already dead before they arrived at 2:30 AM, having suffered multiple bruises and bleeding in his ears with traces of excrement all over his body.
The deceased was transferred to Rayong Hospital for an autopsy. Local media interviewed an unidentified nearby vendor about the incident and was told that he spotted the victim walking naked and masturbating, seemingly intoxicated.
Subsequently, the homeless man approached a group of women drinking by the beach, which startled them, and laughed. Witnessing the man’s brazen behavior, a group of 3-4 men sitting near the women stood up and beat the victim. The vendor said he did not stop them because he thought it was only a minor altercation.
The police are trying to identify the culprits.
