The vindictive German co-owner of a Pattaya bar, outraged that his Thai partner had rejected him, sought vengeance, on 3 June 2009, by going to her new place of work, a beer bar in Soi 6, and slashing her neck in full view of customers and staff.
He escaped immediately afterwards and police are still searching for him
Arriving at the bar, the police found a crowd of onlookers, both Thai and foreigners, gathered around. The victim, Miss. Sairoong Boonsomtop, , a waitress at the bar, had a 20 cm.-wide wound on her neck. The heavily bleeding wound was so deep
that it had nearly reached her trachea. She was rushed to Pattaya International Hospital.
The actual attack happened while Miss Sairoong was playing snooker with a foreign customer in the bar. Miss Sairoong's partner, Mr Harry had apparently approached her from behind, held her in a neck lock and then slashed her neck with a knife,
splashing blood everywhere right in front of everybody. Harry had apparently then run away to the end of the soi, caught a motorbike taxi and sped away.
Questioning Miss Sairoong's friends, police were told that Mr. Harry was the co-owner of the Poppy Beer Bar in Pattaya Soi 6. He was apparently a jealous individual who was always drunk. [The word on the Street is that it was Red Point Bar].
The police will continue their search for the suspect and arrest him as soon as possible.
