A man, seemingly deranged and carrying a fake gun, caused panic in the Sirikarnjan village in Bang Samak, Bang Pakong, Chachoengsao province when he was seen shaking the fences of every home and shouting. The incident, captured on CCTV, took place around 4am today, January 8.

Aged between 30 and 35 years old, the man was eventually taken into custody by police after villagers contacted the local Bang Pakong Police Station.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Amnat Yimniam, Deputy Head of Bang Pakong Police Station, led the investigation and surveillance teams to the scene after receiving video clips and photos from villagers showing the man’s movements. The police planned and ensured safety measures until 6am before they charged towards the man standing in front of the village.

Upon arrest, they discovered a fake gun and identified him as Mangkorn, 37 years old, who claimed he was hiding from people who were chasing him to harm him. He ran to the village as someone waved him in. Reviews of the video clips showed Mangkorn trying to enter one of the houses.
