He explained , on September 3rd, 2008, he had 500 Baht from his mother to go to Bangkok [where the protest was holding]. On September 4th, at 05.30, he decided to hire a taxi from Bangkok to Chonburi [ price agreed 1,200 Baht], in spite of knowing that he did not have the money.

He lured the taxi driver to go to his mother’s place, to get the money for the taxi, but when the car was passing the dark road, he turned around to attack the driver by stabbing 4 times on the driver’s neck with a pen, grabbed a spanner to hit on the victim’s head, kicked him out of the car, took his very little money and a watch, then drove away with no particular destination.
