The Burmese pump attendant working at the garage told Pol. Lt. Col. Ekachai that the thieves weren’t armed but roughed him up in the process of the robbery, dragging him to the cash register and demanding he opened it. The pump attendant admitted he was afraid he would be hurt so escaped their clutches as the two men robbed the cash till.

Pol. Lt. Col. Ekachai also questioned Suwan Onthum, 35, a truck driver, who witnessed the incident.

Suwan said…

“I saw the two men but thought they were friends of the pump boy and were teasing him so I wasn’t worried about anything. It wasn’t until later that I realised they were villains who came in and hijacked the money.”

Pol. Lt. Col. Ekachai reported he would use CCTV footage to track down the suspects’ motorcycle and hoped to prosecute the men involved very soon.
