Home invasion: Frenchman fends off Fortuner attack in Phuket

PHUKET TOWN: Chalong Police are hunting for the owner of a ‘beer bar’ who allegedly drove his Toyota Fortuner into the house of a former friend, then entered the home and began smashing property.

When Chalong Police arrived at the house on Soi Saiyuan in Rawai around 2pm yesterday, they found 31-year-old Gabriel Troisgros in a state of shock.

Mr Troisgros told police a former friend had phoned him several times starting from 6am that morning, insulting him in crude language.

The calls continued until the man appeared outside the house in a Black Toyota Fortuner, which he rammed repeatedly into the home’s sliding door, destroying it, Mr Troisgros said.
