The altercation occurred at a village in Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri, around 2.50am when 36 year old national, Igor was struck by the British man during the gathering, ultimately causing him to fall and hit his head on the floor, sustaining life-threatening injuries.

At 1pm on the same day, the Superintendent of the Pattaya City Police Station, Police Lieutenant Colonel Nawin Thirawit, directed investigators to seek an arrest warrant from the Pattaya Provincial Court for the 35 year old Briton, Ricki.

The warrant was swiftly issued, and police arrested him on charges of assaulting another person, causing death.

Quickly apprehended

Ricki was apprehended at a guest house in Sattahip District, Chon Buri, approximately 10 kilometres from the site of the incident. He was promptly transported to the Pattaya City Police Station for questioning and further legal proceedings.

The 28 year old Thai spouse of Ricki, Mod provided crucial context into the events leading up to the tragic altercation.

According to her account, her husband had invited her to join a group of friends at the pool villa, where the party was underway. However, she had to leave early due to work obligations, leaving her husband behind.

Upon receiving a distressing message from her husband around 3am wishing to return home, Mod rushed back to the villa, only to find him wandering in the middle of the street.

She relayed her husband’s version of events to authorities, indicating that Igor had allegedly made inappropriate advances towards their daughter during the gathering, despite the presence of his spouse.

Reportedly, Igor’s actions escalated to the point of sexual harassment directed at their daughter, which incited Ricki’s violent response.

Shrouded in anger, he delivered a single blow to Igor, with the fatal punch inadvertently leading to the unexpected death of Igor.

Ricki, while admitting to his actions, expressed remorse and stated that he had not anticipated the tragic consequences, reported Khaosod.

As investigations continue into this harrowing incident, it stands as a sobering reminder of the potential consequences of unchecked altercations, even within the seemingly carefree atmosphere of social gatherings.

Original story: Russian man critical after assault at Chon Buri pool villa party

A 36 year old Russian man is in critical condition after being assaulted at a pool villa party in Chon Buri yesterday. The incident occurred early at a villa in Nong Prue, Bang Lamung. The suspect fled amid the chaos following the attack.

The group had just met that day and decided to have a party at the pool villa. According to 22 year old Piyada, a friend of the injured man, the victim and the attacker had never met before.

They were all drinking together when a conversation quickly turned into a heated argument. The attacker, whose exact nationality remains unknown, stood up and delivered a fatal punch to the victim, causing him to fall and hit his head on the floor, Piyada said.

“Everyone was shocked and tried to help him. Once we gathered our thoughts, we immediately called for assistance.”

Pansan quickly issued a radio alert to capture the suspect based on eyewitness descriptions. The investigation team from the Pattaya City Police Station is gathering evidence from surveillance cameras in the vicinity and along the suspect’s escape route to bring them to justice, reported Pattaya News.
