In a swift response to a brutal attack by a gang of youths in Pathum Thani, local police are intensifying their efforts to apprehend the remaining suspects. The incident involved a group of eight to nine teenagers forcing a young man to stop his motorcycle and subsequently attacking him with a knife, causing severe injuries.

The police have reassured the public that they are not taking the case lightly and are committed to capturing all those involved. The attack, which occurred without any apparent reason, took place in front of a village in the Klong 7 area of Thanyaburi district, Pathum Thani.

The parents of the victims, aged 18 and 17, whose names have been withheld for their protection, reported the incident at Thanyaburi Police Station. However, more than two months had passed with only one arrest made.

Thanyaburi Police Station today, January 25, held a briefing where the chief police officer stated that immediate action was taken upon receiving the report of the crime. Initially, only one out of the six perpetrators had been detained.

The police are confident that it won’t be long before the remaining members of the gang are apprehended, having already identified all of the suspects. In a move to expedite the investigation, law enforcement officials have summoned the two juvenile victims and their guardians for further questioning.
