Banglamung police investigator, Pol. Maj. Suwit Sawangmongkol, was on patrol when he received a report of the incident at 03.30 am and rushed to the scene to investigate. In front of a 7/11 store they found Mr. James Joseph Dylan [27] , an Australian national, sitting in front of the 7/11 shop.

His face was covered in blood and he had sustained a head injury from a hard object. The rescue team gave him first aid and rushed him to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital.

During questioning, Mr. Dylan told police he was on his way home walking along the street where he lives. While he was passing an Internet shop, next to the 7/11, he noticed 6 teenagers playing an online game making a lot of noise.

Mr. Dylan said he stopped and looked at them, at which point the group of young men walked out of the shop and started to attack him and then sped off on their motorbikes.

Police filed his report and presumed the youths were a gang of tearaways who reacted to the way the victim had looked at them. Investigations continue, including the questioning of witnesses in the neighborhood and further questioning of the victim once he has recovered sufficiently from his wounds.
