Pattaya, 3rd January 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 04.00 a.m, Pattaya police investigator Lieutenant General Bricha Samti was notified of a foreign man who had been stabbed with a knife and robbed in a dark soi near the Pattaya Paladium on Second Road.

A police and medical team were dispatched to the scene, where they found the wounded man, Mr Andrey Grishin, a 38-year-old Russian, sitting on a wooden bench screaming for help. He had a serious stab wound which had cut through his shoulder through to the armpit, leaving his arm hanging and bleeding profusely. He was immediately sent to the Pattaya Memorial Hospital.

In spite of his injury, Mr. Grishin was still able to tell the police that he had left his room no. 2204 at the Holiday Inn to take a drink at an entertainment venue. He was not familiar with the streets of Pattaya and on his way back he went along the wrong soi, where he met a group of workers by a construction site who were drinking.

They greeted him and asked him to join them. They gave him a glass of alcoholic drink and as he raised it to say “cheers” one of the Thai men tried to stab him in the head. Mr.Grishin said he moved quickly to avoid the knife but he was stabbed in the shoulder. After that, the group of about 5 men scattered and ran . At first Mr. Grishin didn’t realize why he had been stabbed, but then he noticed that all his belongings were gone, with nothing left but his tourist guide handbook.

Police immediately carried out a search for the criminals, who were known to be staying close to the construction site where they were working. Once found, the suspects can expect to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
