Patong restaurateur stabbed | Thaiger

PATONG: The owner of a restaurant off Sawasdirak Rd, near the Patong beachfront, is in stable condition after being stabbed early on Thursday morning.

He was allegedly stabbed by a drunk teenager who was dining in his restaurant.

Capt Jongserm Preecha of Kathu Police Station told the Gazette that he received a call from Patong Hospital at 3 am reporting that a man, unconscious after being stabbed, had been admitted to the emergency ward.

He identified the man as Narongchai Puttipat, 46, the owner of Sab Isarn restaurant in Soi Yai Yui, off Sawasdirak Rd.

“He was stabbed in his own restaurant at 2 am by a drunk man. We only know the assailant’s nickname, “Kea”, and that he is 19 years old and from Pak Phanang in Nakhon Sri Thammarat,” he said.

“K. Narongchai warned Kea about being drunk, which made Kea very angry. He then stabbed K. Narongchai in his right ribs with his pocket knife and ran away with four friends who were sitting with him in the restaurant,” Capt Jongserm said.

Although Capt Jongserm could not describe the exact nature of K. Narongchai’s injury, he said the victim was rushed to Patong Hospital where the doctors’ recommended that he be transferred immediately to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket City for surgery.

“Narongchai is recovering at Vachira Hospital. He is now in stable condition,” he said.

“We have applied for an arrest warrant for Kea and are waiting for K. Narongchai to be well enough to file a statement,” he added.
