disturbing incident occurred on Walking Street in the early hours of
Sunday Morning which was initially dealt with by the Tourist Police
based on the street.
Three men from Estonia made a complaint at the Tourist Police Mobile
Unit regarding a confrontation with three Thai Men in Soi 15. It is
thought the men were being ushered into a Show Bar but decided at the
last minute that they did not want to go. The Thai men became angry and
a fight ensued.
The men were told to make their way to Pattaya Police Station to make a
report, however they decided to take matters into their own hands and
went back to confront the Thai men. It is thought that more than 15 men
set-upon the three Estonian Men.
One managed to run away, a second was hit over the head with a steal
pole and a third man was stabbed in the leg with a broken bottle. A
major artery in his leg was severed and he was rushed to Hospital. Later
on Sunday he died from the injury according to medical staff at the
Pattaya Memorial Hospital.
The incident, which is now a murder investigation, occurred only meters
away from the Tourist Police Unit and is now being investigated by
Pattaya Police and the Tourist Police as the hunt for the attackers
We understand that as of Monday Afternoon, no arrests had been made in
connection with the attack.
