In a corner near the junction of Highway 332 and J-Intersection-Kasemphop Road, Bang Saray, Sattahip, a temporary abode has been claimed by a violent 55 year old homeless man.

Responding to distress calls, law enforcement officers swooped in to confront the unidentified vagabond, after reports flooded in of his erratic and alarming behaviour. Witnesses recounted harrowing tales of the man hurling stones at unsuspecting passersby and residents, prompting fears for public safety to skyrocket.

A police spokesperson stated that as a precautionary measure, a knife and a hammer were confiscated from the man.

While the man’s prolonged presence in the area was acknowledged by locals, his recent actions shocked the community. Terrified residents recounted their encounters, describing instances where they were forced to retreat into their homes and secure their doors upon his menacing approach.
