Four teenagers were arrested after they allegedly attacked a convenience store clerk who told customers to wear face masks before entering the shop over the weekend. Surveillance camera footage from the shop in the central province of Ratchaburi shows a group of teenagers gathering around the 19 year old employee before attacking him, punching and kicking until he fell on the floor.
The employee told Thai media that one of the teenagers walked inside the shop without a face mask and seemed to be drunk. Just like he does with other customers, the employee said he politely advised the teenager to put on a face mask. The teen allegedly shouted and cursed before punching the clerk in the face. The employee said he fought back to protect himself, but more teenagers came in and attacked him. A woman, who seemed to know the teenagers, stopped the attack and brought the victim inside the shop.
The officers tracked each teenager from the CCTV footage and found that they lived near the petrol station where the incident happened. They were charged with attacking others and causing serious injuries. The officers are waiting for the results from a medical check before pressing more charges.
