“The unidentified man, aged around 30-40, was found lying in a pool of blood on the roof of the shop on Thepkasattri Road.”

A man fell to his death after jumping from an apartment onto the awning of a shop below in Phuket’s Thalang district after breaking into an apartment early yesterday morning, October 29.

The unidentified man, aged around 30-40, was found lying in a pool of blood on the roof of the shop on Thepkasattri Road, according to police, who were alerted at around 5.30am. The man suffered a deep wound to his head. He was only wearing black trousers, and a mobile phone was found in his pocket.

Bangkok Post report that the owner of the shop told police she heard noises at around 5am suggesting someone was walking on the shop’s roof while she and her mother were sleeping. Later, she heard a loud noise like that of a large object falling onto the roof. When they ran outside to investigate, she found the man lying dead on the awning.

An apartment owner in the building told police he was alerted by a female tenant that someone had climbed up from the roof of a nearby shop and broken into her room. When the man saw officers arrive he reportedly jumped from the third floor apartment to the roof of the shop, he said.
