Phuket man mutilates self in jealous rage



PHUKET: A 19-year-old man charged for assisting in the attack on Vorasit “Pla wan” Issara last year (story here) was found bleeding heavily in his Phuket Town room early yesterday morning after he reportedly stabbed himself in the leg in a fit of jealous rage.

Police arrived at the scene, an apartment off Phun Phol Road, at about 3:50am to find Narubet “Goh” Tesnork leaning against a bed in a pool of blood.

The officers were alerted to his condition after Waraporn Boonreungsri, 29, called to explain that her boyfriend had stabbed himself repeatedly in the leg.

“His face was pale and he was bleeding from stab wounds to his leg,” said Rachan Phunwai of the Phuket City Police.

“Kusoldharm Foundation rescue workers administered first aid, then rushed him to Vachira Phuket Hospital,” Capt Rachan said.

Ms Waraporn told police that Mr Narubet found a message from another man on her mobile phone, which was the catalyst for a fight between the couple.

“He thought I was going to leave him for the other man,” Ms Waraporn told police. “He was so angry, but he didn’t want to hurt me, so he started stabbing himself.”

Police will question Mr Narubet over the incident after he has recovered sufficiently, Capt Rachan said.

Police did not note whether or not Mr Narubet would be tested for drugs.

However, officers did confirm that Mr Narubet was one of eight suspects charged for the attack on Pla Wan Issara, general manager of the Sri Panwa resort and son of Thai construction magnate Songkran Issara, at the Rachada pub in Phun Phol on January 4, 2012 (story here).
