A 35 year old Russian was found dead around 6.30am yesterday in a pool of blood with serious head, arm and leg injuries after falling from a condo balcony in Pattaya.

Ruk Siam News reports that Pattaya police and emergency responders headed to Building B of the Sea Breeze Jomtien Resort after receiving reports that the man fell to his death. He was only wearing underwear when found.

Condo staff say there were no witnesses to the incident. They told police they just heard a thud and alerted police. The dead man had been staying on the fourth floor with two other Russians.

An 18 year old Thai man told police that another man had been drinking on Saturday night with the Russian and had taken the man back to his room as the Russian was drunk. He was shock on hearing the news of the man’s death and told police that the victim was a boxer.

The body is now at the Bang Lamung Hospital while the Russian Embassy contacts relatives.

A man in Chon Buri’s Muang district burned his own house down in the early hours of this morning. He was reportedly intoxicated and high on methamphetamine at the time. Police were notified of the fire at around 5am at a house in Napa, in the northern part of Chon Buri.

Firefighters and 3 fire engines arrived at the scene but the house was already fully ablaze. It took about an hour to control the fire. The house and two vehicles were completely destroyed, but fortunately there were no injuries or loss of life in the incident.

The man’s mother, whose name is being withheld, spoke emotionally to police, alleging that her son had taken “lots” of methamphetamine pills before the incident and was heavily intoxicated. She says the fire was set intentionally.

She asked police to find her son, who fled the scene and remains missing, and put him in jail, as she hopes that it will help him break his drug habit.

Police in Chon Buri’s Banglamung subdistrict are hunting for a suspect on a motorbike who allegedly snatched a gold necklace worth 65,000 baht from another motorcyclist in the Nongprue area. 40 year old Somchai Jandaphon, a contractor, filed a report with Nongprue Police yesterday.

He told police that he was driving a motorbike in Soi Marb Tado when the suspect, also on a motorbike, snatched the necklace off his neck at a stop before speeding away. Parts of the necklace and a precious amulet were found on the nearby roadside, having broken off during the incident, but the main part of the necklace is still missing.

Jandaphon says this is the second time that he’s has been a victim of a gold snatching incident, and the previous suspect was never caught. The first incident was some time ago. Banglamung police are hunting the suspect and reviewing security footage from the immediate vicinity.

Several local organisations have rallied to help a homeless Japanese man living on Pattaya beach after being left destitute by the Covid-19 crisis. It’s understood that Pattaya Tourist Police found the visibly upset man on the beach with his luggage.

After a representative from the Pattaya Japanese Association was called to translate, police learned that the man had been stranded in Pattaya since the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus and had run out of money. The Pattaya News reports that the Pattaya Japanese Association paid for the man to stay in a local hotel and provided him with food, before organising his transport to the Japanese Embassy in Bangkok.

It’s understood he is now in the care of the embassy, where officials are arranging for him to return to his family in Japan.
