A Thai man attacked his girlfriend at a restaurant before dragging her 1 kilometre down a road while riding a motorcycle in the central province of Pitsanuloak.

The victim’s mother, 56 year old Kingkarn, spoke to KhaoSod about the incident yesterday. Kingkarn revealed that the attack took place on Friday, April 14 while her daughter, 33 year old Nanthiya “Hong” Atchayutpokin, was working at a restaurant.

According to Kingkarn, Hong’s boyfriend, 26 year old Donlaphat, arrived at the restaurant to take Hong home, even though she hadn’t finished her work. Donlaphat suddenly slapped his girlfriend in the face in front of a lot of customers and forced her to leave the restaurant.

Kingkarn said Donlaphat dragged Hong along the road while riding a motorcycle until they arrived at his house. It was over 1 kilometre from the restaurant.

Hong took to Facebook to share her story and post pictures of her injuries, which were severe. She revealed that other motorists followed Donlaphat’s motorcycle until they arrived at his home. Donlaphat went into the house and left her lying outside of the house with numerous wounds. The motorists who followed her then contacted a rescue team to take her to the hospital.

Hong stated that she had severe injuries on her knees that necessitated surgery. Reports indicated that she might require brain surgery due to the presence of internal bleeding in her head.

Kingkarn revealed that Donlaphat’s mother urged her to drop the charges. However, she expressed her disappointment and stated that she intends to pursue the case so that Donlaphat can face the consequences of his actions. She further mentioned that she does not desire any apology from him or his family. Kingkarn stated…

“He (Donlaphat) abused my daughter for the five months that they were together. I asked Hong to break up with him, but she always forgave Donlaphat. It is too much this time. He meant to kill my daughter. This is not love.”

The Superintendent of the Meaung Pitsamulok Police Station, Pakphum Prapsiphum, reported that Donlaphat was arrested immediately after the incident occurred and released on bail on Monday, April 17. Pakphum reassured Kingkarn that officers will not ignore the case and it will be processed step by step.
