A petrol station attendant was stabbed to death yesterday morning allegedly by motorcyclist who refused to pay for gas. Staff members at the Esso gas station in Pathum Thani, north of Bangkok, say a motorcyclist pulled out a knife, refusing to pay for 40 baht worth of fuel before stabbing the pump attendant, 39 year old Sorawut Nakwichai.

Police say Sorawut’s body was found inside the station’s mini mart at 1:40am yesterday. He had been stabbed 10 times on his chest, neck and torso. A knife was found nearby.

Staff members say Sorawut had filled the motorcycle’s tank with gas, but the rider refused to pay and pull out a knife. Apparently, the man left, but came back a few minutes later, running up to Sorawat and stabbing him multiple times, the witnesses say. Sorawat ran to the mini mart, but the motorcyclist followed and stabbed Sorawat to death, the witnesses say.

Police are still investigating and are reviewing surveillance camera footage.
