Five men including two minors surrendered to police after allegedly attacking a 67 year old computer teacher, identified as Weerapong Masusai, in northeastern Thailand. The five surrendered to police in Nakhon Phanom yesterday morning.

Police identified the suspected attackers as 20 year old Chokchai Mapan, 22 year old Natthawut Taiboontiam, 23 year old Laisue Yolai, and two minors aged between 16 and 17 years old, whose names are being withheld.

Police say they confessed to beating Weerapong after a misunderstanding at a party, where they had been drinking. When the party was over, the five reportedly chased the teacher down and beat him unconscious.

Bail has been denied for three adult suspects, while the teenagers have been sent to the provincial attorney for interrogation.

The teacher reportedly suffered from a severe concussion. As of yesterday he was scheduled to undergo surgery at the Nakhon Phanom General Hospital.
