Around mid-day on the 9th February 2011 Police General Nantawut Suwanlaorng, Police Officials Pattaya received complaints from Mr. Jestin Elekjoseph, 28, and Mr. Johnny Wittel ,28, both Canadian magazine models, along with their friends, Mr. Keri Chill 27, Ms. Tida Thannawan 45, Ms. Sopa Thanawan 43, Ms. Nuarat Samsaen 43. The 3 Thai women are known as hi-so business owners of a famous restaurant and jewellery business in Pattaya said they had been tricked and attacked by the owners, managers and staff of a go-go bar resulting in personal injury.

Ms Tida Thanawan said that at about 02.00 a.m. on the 5th February, she took her friends out for a drink at the entertainment venue “super girls a-go-go” on Walking Street Moo 10 Nongphrue Banglamung Chonbrui . Her friends comprised a group of 7 including the magazine models. At 03.15 the manager came to the group of friends to tell them that the bar was closing. However they hadn’t finished their beer and Ms Tida asked to sit a little longer, making the manager angry and led him to shout at her.

Ms Tida said that an argument evolved, as she thought it impertinent of a manager to treat a customer that way and, as she had brought her foreign friends, the manager should be making a better impression so that they would come back to Thailand as tourists. After Ms Tida made her complaints the manager said ” I don’t care how big you are around here, I am the mafia. Not even the police dares to mess with me and my people. Who the hell do you think you are?”. After Ms. Tida had heard this she and her friends decided to leave the bar.

After they walked out of the entrance of the bar, about 5 girls rushed after her and pulled her to the ground and attacked her. When her friends tried to help her, other men punched them. There were about 20 people attacking her and her friends. She almost passed out on the side of the road, injured with swollen wounds and lesions. They also threatened to get their guns. When she and her friends recovered from the shock of the attack, they helped each other to Bangkok hospital, Pattaya.

Mr. Jestin and Mr. Johnny both of them magazine models, victims of the a-go-go bar attack, said they made their way here for a shooting and a show on the 16th February in Bangkok. However they got involved in the incident and received wounds before the show and shooting, which meant they were not able to do the job anymore and lost over 8500,000 Baht. Besides the injuries they said they also felt sad as this was their first time in Pattaya, and it had turned out like this.

Police General Nantawut Suwanlaorng said: at first he would let investigation officials question those involved. In this case the police will be fair to both sides and issue a summons to the parties litigant, they will however carry out further investigation in order to continue legal proceedings

After that Mr. Phrasopchodee Ansuechai, 51, residing at 6 Moo 5 Nongprueh Banglamung Chonburi , the manager of the a-go-go bar to handed himself in and confessed that he had caused the incident. He stated that the claim of 20 attackers was an exaggeration and that there only 5 were involved. They will also hand themselves in later. The reason for the beating was that they had been provoked. The police charged him with assault causing personal injury, and further legal proceedings will follow.
