PHUKET – 24,2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; Phuket police were informed that two tourists assaulted other tourists at Soi Bangla. It was also reported that the tourists had already been caught by other tourists and residents as they fear that others would be further injured by the mad tourist. Police were asked to immediately come to the scene to investigate and arrest the two tourists.

As soon as the incident was reported, a team of police officers was sent out together with Police Lt. General Nikorn Choothong and Police Capt. Kornkrit Kunkrua of Kathu Police station. When police arrived at the scene, they found that over 500 tourists and locals were surrounding the incident. In the middle of the street, police found two tourists who were later identified as Australian tourists. From their Passports, they were identified as 26 year-old Anthony Sounder and 30 year-old Brad Trapp. Both were in a severely injured state and they were also bleeding heavily from their injuries. Police also found an injured American, who was identified as 28 year-old John Hangsa. Witnesses informed the police that the fellow American was assaulted by the two Australians. All three injured tourists were sent to Pathong Hospital

After questioning the two Australian tourists, it was known that they just set foot to Thailand just a day before the incident happened and that it was their first to Thailand. It was also known that they stayed in an apartment at Soi Na-nai in Pathong sub-district. They both went out at night to explore the night-life of Phuket. After having consumed a big amount of alcohol, they were in a drunk state, leading to the reported incident. Anthony, one of the Australian suspect told the police that they wanted to go in to the Hollywood Discotheque, but once they tried to go in, they were rejected by the doorkeeper as he saw them in a heavily drunk state. They were not happy that they were kicked out, so they assaulted and attacked nearby tourists and bar girls with dangerous objects such as chairs or ice blocks.

When other tourists and locals saw their unacceptable behaviour they went in to catch and stop the mad Australians, fearing that anymore people would be assaulted by them. As soon as they were caught, a local called up the police to arrest them, they were later sent to the hospital as they had been injured as well. Police are now investigating the incident and will report further movements on the case.
