Man charged after stabbing Australian tourist in Phang Nga



A man has been charged after stabbing an Australian tourist who sustained serious injuries in Phang Nga yesterday.

The Khao Lak Police were notified that the Australian man sustained injuries after being stabbed at a bar in Takua Pa, Phang Nga last evening.

The injured man is 44 year old Australian tourist William Mark Wayne. He was rushed to Takua Pa Hospital where he is now recovering after doctors were able to stem the bleeding. He is currently in a stable condition.

Police say that Mr Wayne was drinking at a bar with male and female Thai friends. The suspect name Chanin ‘Tiw’ Innarong parked his car in front of the bar.

He walked straight up to one of the woman and told her that he wanted her shirt that she was wearing. (The reason for his demands are not clear at this stage)

She told Chanin that she will give it him later as she couldn’t take it off at the time. Thanin insisted that he wanted the shirt. A scuffle developed as the man tried to pull the shirt off her.

Mr Wayne thought that Chanin was violently attacking the woman and tried to jump in to protect her. Chanin was angry and hit out at Mr Wayne, according to the police report. He used a knife to stab Mr Wayne on his right and left arms, stomach and collarbone. After that Thanin sped away.

Police soon after arrested Thanin at a night club in Khao Lak. Police have seized the six inche knife. He was taken to Khao Lak Police Station where he is facing charges of  intent to kill and carrying knife in public without reason.
