A homeless woman in Pattaya is said to have allegedly struck a homeless man on the head with a chopping knife during a party, alleging it was in self-defence because the man attempted to rape her. However, the victim claims that the woman was trying to rob him.

The victim, 52 year old Sujin Sriubol, was found by residents of Soi Thep Prasit 9 in Pattaya around 10pm yesterday. He was heavily intoxicated and sustained a deep knife wound to his head, according to the locals who came to his aid, reported Pattaya News.

Sujin reported that a woman tried to rob him in an abandoned building and proceeded to attack him with a knife. He was then transported to a local hospital for treatment by Sawang Boriboon rescuers.

Pattaya Police were later called in to investigate the incident at the building in Soi Thep Prasit 9. They found a bloodstain on the ground and discovered the Thai woman, 49 year old Somchit Meelad, also heavily under the influence of alcohol.

The homeless woman’s version of the story was quite different from Sujin’s. Somchit told police that she did not attempt to rob the victim, but rather, Sujin attacked and tried to rape her while they were drinking rice whisky together in the building. In response to the attack, she used a chopping knife to strike him on the head in an attempt to defend herself.

Somchit was arrested and legal proceedings are now underway. Officers at the scene seized a chopping knife from the homeless woman’s possession and stated that they would question Sujin, later on, to determine whether Somchit’s claim was indeed true.

This disturbing incident highlights the vulnerability of homeless individuals, who are often left to fend for themselves in dangerous situations. With a lack of support and resources, these vulnerable individuals are left exposed to crime, violence, and dangerous situations.

While the investigation is still ongoing, authorities and communities must work together to address the plight of the homeless in Pattaya and other cities. This not only involves immediate interventions, such as providing shelter and support services, but also long-term solutions, including access to mental healthcare, job training, and substance abuse treatment.
