Pattaya Bar Staff Reportedly Assaulted by German Man who Allegedly Refused to Pay His Bill

Pattaya —

A bar staff member and her manager in Pattaya filed a police report against an alleged German dine-and-dasher who reportedly refused to pay his bill and also attacked them on Sunday, April 7th, 2024.

At 3 PM on April 7th, Ms. Anchisa Thongpuek, a manager of a Pattaya bar on Soi Lengkee, and Ms. Warunee Yodpromwaen, a staff member, filed a police report at the Pattaya Police Station, accusing an unidentified German man of assault.

The two women narrated that the attack occurred around 2:00 AM on the same day that they filed the report. A German man, accompanied by his Thai wife, entered their bar and ordered beers. However, when presented with the bill after finishing their drinks, the man allegedly refused to pay, claiming the bar had inflated the charges. Despite the bar’s explanation of the bill, which was around 1,000 baht, the man became belligerent.

Staff member Ms. Warunee stated that she and her manager tried to negotiate with the man, but it was unsuccessful due to his intoxication. Suddenly, the man became violent and reportedly attacked both her and the manager. According to Ms. Warunee’s narration, the man shoved, slapped, pulled their hair, and even forced them to the ground before dragging them out onto the street. The Thai wife reportedly stood by without intervening, Ms. Warunee said.

Fortunately, Pattaya police arrived at the scene and apprehended the man for behaving and acting disorderly under the influence of alcohol.

The manager, Ms. Anchisa, further accused that the man posed a serious threat. She claimed that his wife told her the man habitually becomes aggressive and uncontrollable when consuming more than six beers. Ms. Anchisa expressed concern that he might repeat such behavior elsewhere.

Ms. Anchisa and her staff member gave a CCTV recording of the attack to Pattaya police. They declared they will pursue the case to the fullest extent of the law and stressed that they felt the man was dangerous and should be prosecuted, blacklisted, and deported from Thailand and planned to fully use the law to do so.
