PATTAYA – December 5, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 5:30 a.m., a report of a foreigner assaulting 7-Eleven employees on Walking Street was received by Pol. Capt. Sathien Ratchaphongthai, Deputy Inspector, Pattaya police station, Chonburi province.

Police arrived at the scene and found the female staff arguing with the drunken foreigner, identified as Mr. Eric Carmel, age 44, nationality French. The police stopped the argument and investigated. The assistant manager, Ms. Wanpen Buadaeng, age 31, told police she had been slapped in her face by the foreigner, which left a bruise.

She described the events leading up to the violence. The drunken foreign man had entered the shop to buy a 50 THB True Move online pre-paid card for his mobile phone. A female employee refilled his phone with the phone card, and asked him for the 50 THB. The foreigner handed over a 50 THB bill and a 2 THB coin, so she gave him back the coin.

The clerk then informed the foreign man to wait for the SMS notice in his mobile phone, showing his phone was refilled. But the foreign man began shouting that the staff still didn’t refill his mobile phone, and he asked for the money back.

So the clerk asked to see his mobile phone. She saw the SMS notice stating that his phone had been refilled for the 50 THB amount. So she told the foreign man to check his mobile phone again to see the SMS notice, but the man didn’t believe her.

The drunken Frenchman threw his mobile phone at the staff, and shouted to scold the clerk very loudly. He demanded his 50 THB back, including the 2 THB coin too, even though the clerk had earlier returned his 2 THB coin.

Then the assistant manager Ms. Wanpen saw the commotion. She also noticed that other customers in the shop were getting frightened by the raging drunk foreigner. So Ms. Wanpen went to assist the staff. She looked at the Frenchman’s mobile phone, and saw the SMS message saying the system had refilled the 50 THB money for him.

So she told the foreign man to look at his phone to see that the staff didn’t cheat him. She then asked the man to leave the shop, but he didn’t listen to her. The foreigner threw the mobile phone at Ms. Wanpen and used his right hand to slap at her face severely until she got injured.

Ms. Wanpen tried to fight against the drunken Frenchman to protect herself, but she could not fight because she is a woman. So the staff and other customers in the shop who saw the foreigner was beating her rushed to assist her, and then notified the police.

Ms. Wanpen will ask the police to prosecute this foreign man because he beat her until she got injured. She also had evidence of CCTV footage that recorded the event of this foreign man beating her.

The drunk Frenchman confessed to the police that he had a quarrel with the female staff in 7-Eleven shop. But he claimed that he didn’t beat the staff. He told the police to check the CCTV in the shop to see that the female staff beat him first. But after checking the CCTV, police saw that this foreign man had beaten the staff first by slapping at Ms. Wanpen’s face.

So the drunken Frenchman confessed that he beat the female staff first. Then he tried to apologize, and pleaded with the staff not to prosecute him. But the injured slapping victim still confirmed to the police to prosecute this foreign man. Therefore, the police restrained both of them to see the investigation officer to investigate and prosecute the foreign man according to the law.
