Toddler killed in botched burglary | Thaiger

RASSADA: A two-year-old girl and her nanny have died after their throats were slit in a botched burglary by two local youths yesterday evening

Phuket Deputy Police Commander Chalit Tinthanee last night announced that the attackers, a 15-year-old student at Phuket Technical College (PTC) and his 17-year-old friend, entered the house of PTC teacher Narisorn Phueng-rang in Baan Kabout about 5 pm.

Once inside they were confronted by the nanny, Dang Panthip, 40. She said she did not have anything of value for them to take and began to shout for help, and K. Narisorn’s two-year-old daughter, Nitchanart, began to cry.

The robbers, afraid someone would hear the commotion, hit Nitchanart on the head with a knife holder, which only made her scream louder.

To quiet the baby and the nanny, the youths then slit both of their throats, Col Chalit said.

K. Dang’s daughter then walked in on the robbers, but managed to escape and remember their license plate number.

She called the police, and around 7:30 pm a police officer arrested the youths near Saphan Hin.

Nitchanart died on the way to the hospital. K. Dang survived the journey, but later died from the injury.

Col Chalit said the teenagers had confessed to charges of murder with intent.

The police have not released the suspects’ names.
