A woman said she was pistol-whipped by her ex-boyfriend, but police did nothing when she first reported the incident. No police responded to the scene. In a photo she posted on social media, her head is down like she had just been hit and blood splattered on the seat.

Orawan Singkum wrote in Thai, translated by Google, that her ex hit her multiple times with a gun. Her ex allegedly pointed the gun at her sister’s head and threatened to kill her and her family. Her sister called the village police chief, but no one came. She said she went to the office and reported the incident to police, but they told her they had no power to arrest the man.

The story was picked up by multiple Thai news sources. She later posted on Facebook saying police are “now working on it.”

    Domestic violence against any woman or girl just shows the weakness of a Thai man…..I hope the girl got justice but i very much doubt that she did because she is just a normal person and NOT rich!

    Is anyone surprised by this? The Thai Police are among the worst most corrupt in the World. They won’t get off their fat asses unless they are bribed.

    Horrible, but loosing face is a big deal in Thailand. Most violent acts are a result of that! I hope she’s ok…
