PATTAYA – March 29, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 4:30 a.m., a wounded man walked into the police station to get help and report that he had been stabbed. Receiving the report was Pol. Lt. Col. Weerawut Meelai, detective officer of Muang Pattaya police station.

The injured victim identified himself as Mr. Wiharn, 53 years old, a self-described scavenger. He had been stabbed in his left cheek, and his left thumb got cut, and he had shed a lot of blood.

Mr. Wiharn told police he makes a living as a scavenger. But today he wanted to rest, so he did not work. Instead he bought beer and was drinking at the beach area near Mae Milai beach. Then a drunk acquaintance who was also a beach scavenger came along, and tried to greet him.

But Mr. Wiharn wanted to avoid the man, so he walked away. But the man did not stop, and came to talk to him again and again. Then the man got pissed, so they got into a quarrel. Then the drunk man punched him in the face, and took a cutter knife out of his pocket and tried to stab him.

Mr. Wiharn tried to protest by using his hands to wave him away, but he ended up getting stabbed. So Mr. Wiharn ran away to see the police, while the drunk man remained on the beach.

The police called the rescuers from Sawangboriboon foundation Pattaya to give the victim first aid, and then went to the crime scene. They arrested the suspect and found the cutter knife in his shoulder bag, and took him to the Pattaya police station.

The drunk suspect was identified as Mr. Poon Krasae, 40 years old, living at a house in Samsuan, Bantan, Chaiyapoom. He said he was also a scavenger. Still drunk, Mr. Poon confessed that he had hurt Mr. Wiharn.
He told the police that he and the old man were beggars at the beach, and they usually talked to each other during encounters. But today, Mr. Wiharn acted like he did not know him, even though he wanted to talk to him because they were acquaintances.

He tried to remind Mr. Wiharn that he had known him since he was a beggar at the beach. But Mr. Wiharn got huffy and said that he did not beg, he was a scavenger. Then Mr. Wiharn started acting like he did not want to talk to Mr. Poon again. He chased him away, and rudely said that Mr. Poom smelled stink from his job and not taking a bath.

So Mr. Poon got pissed off, and used the cutter to hurt Mr. Wiharn and teach him a lesson. After stabbing Mr. Wiharn, he did not go anywhere or try to escape, and waited for the police. The police informed Mr. Poon he will be charged and prosecuted for hurting other people.
