A Thai transwoman stabbed her transgender friend outside a hotel on Soi Sukhumvit 11 in Bangkok in the early hours of this morning. The victim’s friend said the two were previously close friends.

Officers from Lumpini Police Station and Ruan Katayu Rescue Foundation rushed to the stabbing scene at about 4am today, March 29. The transgender victim, 27 year old Affan, was found with a severe injury to her arm and wrist. She lost a lot of blood and was rushed to the Police General Hospital.

Police discovered the knife used in the crime at the scene but the attacker vanished. A staff member of the hotel told police that the situation would have escalated if a foreign witness had not intervened because many transwomen were involved in the altercation.

A hotel staff member added that he saw the two ladyboys engaged in a heated argument in an entertainment venue near the hotel. The attacker was armed with a knife while the victim fought with her bare hands.

Affan’s friend, 26 year old Wan, visited Lumpini Police Station on the day to file a complaint against the attacker on behalf of her friend.

Wan stated that the conflict and attack broke out between the two of them and no one else was involved. Wan revealed that the two were good friends and close with one another. She did not know what the motive was for their argument.

Wan added that Affan insisted on proceeding with legal steps to the fullest extent because she might be unable to use her injured hand like before.

Officers are now conducting a close investigation into the case and plan to summon the attacker for questioning.

Another clash of transwomen in Sukhumvit Soi 11 made headlines at the beginning of this month when nearly 2,000 Thai ladyboys physically assaulted Filipina ladyboys outside a hotel.

The altercation broke out after a group of Filipina ladyboys attacked some Thais and stole their belongings. This incident was shared on social media, prompting a group of Thai ladyboys to gather to take revenge.
