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.

Deputy Inspector at Pattaya City Police Station, Pansan Krongsith led the team to the scene after responding to an emergency call at 3.16am.

Upon arrival, they found four foreign men and two women. The injured man was found unconscious on the floor, having suffered a severe head injury. First responders provided initial medical aid, performing CPR before rushing him to the hospital.

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 punched 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.”

The attacker had taken advantage of the ensuing confusion after the assault and took his queue to flee the scene.

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.

In similar news, Pattaya City Police apprehended three security guards after a viral video captured them allegedly assaulting a tourist. The incident, which has caused widespread condemnation and raised concerns about Pattaya’s image as a tourist destination, occurred at approximately 11.36pm yesterday.
