PATTAYA – October 1, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 8:30 p.m., a report of a gold shop being robbed in central Pattaya was received by the Pattaya police station, Chonburi province. Pol. Lt. Col. Vittaya Yeunyong, Inspector, Pattaya police station, rushed to inspect the scene with the police team.

The attempted robbery took place at “Thongdee Yaowarat” gold shop, address 70/6 Soi central Pattaya 9, Moo 9 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

When police arrived at the scene, many onlookers were gathered around at the gold shop. The mirror of the shop door was shattered, and bloodstains were all over the area. Waiting for the police was the still-frightened and injured shop owner, Mr. Banjong Banthoonprayook, age 50, who is also a Pattaya councilmember. While battling the robber, Mr. Banjong suffered a big wound to his right knee.

Mr. Banjong told police that prior to the incident, he had been at the back of the shop, while tending the front of the shop was his relative, Ms. Naowarat Apiwanthanaporn, age 49. A female customer came to pledge for gold, and they both were waiting to check the price of gold. Suddenly a robber wearing jeans and a black jacket ran up to the front of the store. He had covered his head with his black shirt to conceal his face.

The robber tried to open the door but was unsuccessful, because the door was locked automatically. So robber forcefully pulled the 1 cm-thick mirrored door with his hands several times until the door was broken. Then the robber pushed past the broken door into the shop, but cut his leg from the broken mirror in the process, which left blood all over the area.

The robber then threatened the people at the counter, but Ms. Naowarat tried to shout and resist and fought against the robber, so she was punched in her right eye by the robber until she got injured.


When Mr. Banjong heard the noise of fighting, he ran out from the back of the shop and fought against the robber. Then the injured robber fell down to the floor. So Mr. Banjong shouted to ask for assistance from the nearby local people, who rushed in to help capture the robber and restrained him in vigilante-style justice. Then the owner of the gold shop hurried to notify the police.

The injured robber’s cut from the broken mirror door had sliced a tendon in his leg, so he could not walk. His head and face were also badly bruised due to the vigilante justice by the local people. The police brought the robber out of the gold shop and sent him to Banglamung hospital immediately.

The doctor of Banglamung hospital had to sew the suspect’s leg wound with more than 20 stitches. Then the doctor released the suspect to the police since his injuries were not life-threatening. The suspect was brought to the Pattaya police station to be investigated.

The robber was identified as Mr. Krungkrai Jittanon, age 32, from Bangkok. The suspect claimed that he worked as a steward washing dishes in the kitchen of Thai airways. Mr. Krungkai also said he suffers from a neurosis symptom, so he is only able to secure work as a dishwasher for the airlines.

On the day of the robbery attempt, Mr. Krungkrai had finished work, so he traveled by bus from Bangkok to Pattaya to visit two of his relatives, a soldier and a policeman. Mr. Krungkrai arrived in Pattaya at 6.30 p.m., and while walking around, he saw that the victim’s gold shop didn’t set up the iron grille in front of the store to protect against thefts like other shops.

So Mr. Krungkrai had a good intention to steal the gold in the shop, in order to warn the owner of the gold shop that he should set up the iron cage to protect against thieves like other shops. Mr. Krungkrai also felt pity toward the police for their trouble if they have to arrest a robber who robs the gold shop.

The suspect confirmed that his intention was only to warn the shop owner. Mr. Krungkrai argued that he didn’t have any bad intention because he did not have a weapon or getaway vehicle, and he did not belong to a gang that committed crimes.

However, the police didn’t believe Mr. Krungkrai’s claims of his neurosis symptoms and his good intentions. Police checked his history and found that Mr. Krungkrai had never committed any crimes. But in this case the police charged him with stealing property and then sent him to the investigation officer to prosecute further according to the law.
