The victim has been identified as 23 year old Songchaiphon Donchai, who is currently at a local hospital receiving medical treatment for his injuries. Songchaiphon spoke to the Pattaya News to say that the assault happened at a coffee shop at a PTT petrol station that is opposite Maryvit School. Songchaiphon adds that 1 of the assailants is a coworker’s boyfriend, thus Songchaiphon believes the attack was motivated by jealousy.
