The incident, which took place near “The Moon” nightclub on Phraeksa Road in the Mueang district, resulted in nine individuals sustaining injuries.

The confrontation started around half-past midnight when two groups of young men started an argument inside the nightclub. Despite the intervention of security personnel who requested them to vacate the premises, the quarrel escalated outside in the parking area. The brawl, involving more than a dozen individuals, saw the use of both fists and knives, leading to nine people being injured, one of them critically.

Among those injured was Phanthakarn Angkanawarakun, a 29 year old staff member of the nightclub, who suffered a knife wound to his right arm during his attempt to separate the fighting groups.

Following the incident, police detained several individuals who had participated in the brawl. The identities of these individuals were not immediately disclosed. Bang Poo Police Station’s preliminary investigations revealed that all detained suspects were Thai males aged between 20 and 25.
