At 0.30 am. 1st November 2008 Pattaya police investigator Pol.Maj.Chalermsak Tienthongsri reacted swiftly to a report he received that a man had been beaten up by over 10 gang members at Soi 5, Tepprasit Road

At the scene police found the victim, Mr. Gritsada Bunyoung (21) from Samutprakarn province, waiting on the pavement of Tepprasit Road. His body was covered by bruises and his head was bleeding. Police rushed him to hospital.

When questioned later Mr. Gritsada, a waiter at a Café in Pattaya, explained that he had agreed to find a gun for a man named “Kai” and was supposed to deliver it 2 days ago but failed to do so. The victim said he had received 20,000 baht from Mr. Kai and gave it to Mr. Pe, his friend, who would acquire the gun from up country but he could not contact Mr. Pe.

On the night of the attack Mr. Kai called him and made an appointment to meet him in Tepprasit Soi 5. Mr. Kai turned up with his gang of more than 10 men on their motorbikes.

Mr. Gritsada asked for some time to find Mr. Pe who had taken the money, but the negotiation went bad. He claims he was punched in the face, stomach and all over his body. Repeated blows from hard objects had also seriously damaged his head. They demanded the money returned or he would be killed.

Fortunately, some passers-by on motorbikes stopped to have a look and the attackers sped away on their bikes. Mr. Gritsada managed to run to the road and call the police.

The victim has asked for protection from police. He knows where Mr. Kai lives and believes fears he will never be left in peace. Police say they will search for the gang and bring them to justice and charge them for attempted murder. Reports failed to mention whether Mr. Gritsada will be charged for selling a weapon.
