Phuket Prison escapee surrenders in Trang

A male prisoner, who escaped from hospital custody on Monday night (June 25), has surrendered himself to the Kan Tang District Chief in Trang.

The Phuket Provincial Prison Commander Somkid Kammang filed a report with the Phuket City Police on Monday (June 25).

Commander Somkid says, “The male prisoner 23 year old Prawit Pitak from Trang has escaped from Vachira Phuket Hospital at 7pm Monday night. Prisoner Pravit was jailed for a robbery case last Friday (June 22).”

“On Monday morning his left leg had swollen. He was chained and taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital. The doctor said that an operation was necessary. So he was taken to the male inpatient building of the Hospital. The guard attached his right leg to the bed with a chain.”

“At about 7pm his girlfriend visited him at the hospital. Nearby patients say that Prisoner Prawit closed the curtain around his bed. They heard the sounds of the chain and saw that Prisoner Prawit had escaped out of the window. After that he headed to the parking area and got on a motorbike with his girlfriend.”

“Officers tracked him down and found that Prisoner Prawit had escaped to Krabi and then to Trang to see his mother. This morning Prisoner Prawit, along with his relatives, went to the Kan Tang District Office to surrender to the Kan Tang District Chief after Prawit’s relatives had talked with him. ”

“Officers from the Phuket Provincial Prison are going to Trang today to bring Prisoner Prawit back to Phuket for questioning. More charges will be pressed against him. His girlfriend has also been detained for further questioning.”
