Pattaya —

An unidentified foreign man was found unconscious and suffering from multiple stab wounds near Pattaya-Naklua Road on Tuesday morning. Authorities are investigating the incident as a potential robbery.

Update: As of late afternoon on February 13th, 2023, CCTV has been reviewed and authorities are now looking at the possibility that the man, who has been identified as Russian and actually in his fifties, injured himself with a broken beer bottle. The man has reportedly been saved from his injuries at a local hospital and is expected to recover. This is a developing story.

At around 8:00 AM on February 13th, 2024, Pol. Capt. Pisan Hongfakaew, Deputy Director of the Investigation Division at Banglamung Police Station, received a report of the unconscious foreign man lying in a pool of blood on vacant land near the Crystal Palace Hotel. He immediately notified his superiors and coordinated with emergency services for aid and investigation.

The victim was discovered approximately 50 meters from the main road under a large tree. He was found wearing black pants and exhibited several injuries caused by a sharp object, including cuts on both arms and significant stab wounds on the neck. Pol. Capt. Pisan stated that the foreigner had been lying there for several hours, as the blood had dried. A local resident had reportedly found the injured foreigner and called the police.

Rescue personnel from the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation provided first aid and transported the victim to Banglamung Hospital for further treatment. His identity and current condition remain unknown.

A broken beer bottle with bloodstains was found near the victim and secured as evidence. Police are investigating the incident.
