Pattaya, the 25th of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: On Sunday morning, Lieutenant Colonel Chatchai Srisuwan (Pattaya Police Investigator) received a report from a Russian couple regarding an assault and attempted robbery near Soi 4 on the Phratamnak Road.

Miss Olesya Pobtolenko [32] explained that her and her husband, Mr. Ivan Boga Tyrev [30], had been attacked by two Thai youths whilst walking back to their Royal Beach Condo on Phratamnak Road.

Allegedly, the two youths, aged between 18-25 years of age, attempted to snatch the necklace of Miss Pobtolenko while driving past the couple on a black/white motorbike. The pair were unsuccessful in their attempts to snatch the necklace as Mr. Tyrev had anticipated the event, pulling his wife away from the attack and grabbing at the offenders.

During the ensuing struggle with the still moving motorbike, Mr. Tyrev was stabbed in the shoulder and back, before falling to the ground. The offenders allegedly then viciously stomped on him, resulting in further injury to his ear and a cut to the head. Miss Pobtolenko received a torn shirt in the initial robbery attempt.

Following the incident, Miss Pobtolenko assisted her husband back to their condominium, before driving him to the Banglamung Hospital for treatment. Upon being discharged from the hospital, the couple reported the incident to the Pattaya Police Station.

Accordingly, Lt. Col. Srisuwan filed a report on the incident and forwarded it to the investigations department, who will now attempt to locate the attackers.

While leaving the police station in a rather forlorn state, Mr. Tyrev revealed that he had been a victim of a bag snatch on one another occasion in 2009. He exclaimed his disbelief at the inability of the Thai police to effectively deal with incidents of this nature in an international tourism destination.
