Pattaya Man Hospitalized After Domestic Dispute Turns Violent

Chonburi —

A domestic dispute early yesterday morning resulted in multiple injuries and property damage in Pattaya.

At around 2:00 AM on March 4th, 2024, Nongprue Police Station received a report of a stabbing incident at a rented room in the Nongprue sub-district, Banglamung district, Chonburi province. Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene to find a chaotic situation.

Officers discovered Mr. Surasak, 29, who appeared intoxicated and unsteady on his feet. He had sustained a knife wound to his left elbow and was bleeding profusely. Mr. Surasak initially resisted medical treatment and attempted to flee from both police and rescue personnel. After negotiation, he agreed to be transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Inside a rented room, officers located bloodstains on the floor. Mr. Panithi Duanklang, 24, Mr. Surasak’s son-in-law, was found with multiple bruises. Ms. A, 40, Mr. Surasak’s wife, also had bruises. Her four young children were also found understandably shaken by the incident.

According to Ms. A, Mr. Surasak, a construction worker, had returned home intoxicated after experiencing issues at work. He became aggressive and destructive, damaging property and physically assaulting her and their children. Ms. A stated that Mr. Panithi intervened to defend himself and the family with a knife during the alleged assault.

Mr. Surasak remained at the hospital. He will be brought in for questioning at Nongprue Police Station to determine the full cause of the incident and potential charges.
