PATONG: Bar owner Nicolas Cazus, 40, from Sweden, slashed a Thai man with a knife in a fight over a collision with a motorcycle in the early hours of November 7.
Pol Lt Col Pisit Chunpet told the Gazette that police responded to a call from Cazus’s bar on Soi Sainamyen at 3:45 am.
He explained that Cazus had just parked his car in front of his bar when Nuttavuth Palee, 26, pulled up on his motorbike.
The two men began to argue over a collision between the two vehicles earlier that resulted in Cazus’s car being scratched. The men soon started fighting in the street, causing people in the bar to come out and separate them, Col Pisit said.
Cazus was led to the bar’s kitchen, but Nuttavuth, still angry, followed him to continue the conflict.
The fight flared up again and Cazus picked up a small knife and slashed Nuttavuth across the cheek and across one leg, he added
Nuttaveth was treated for his injuries.
Both men were arrested and taken to Kathu Police Station.
