The original incident occurred at 3pm when the two motorcycle snatch and grab riders attempted to rob Mr. Joergen Christian Rasmusen (63), a Danish citizen during the Songkran festivities. The pillion rider , Mr. Nathawut Kun-on aka O-leang (16) from Banglamung, Chonburi, leapt off the bike being ridden by Mr.Prisorn Preamjai aka Bird-Lek (20), from Sattahip and tried to snatch Mr. Joergen’s shoulder bag. However, Mr. Joergen resisted and cried for help, at which point Nathawut stabbed him in his chest and back to silence him. When a passerby approached, Nathawat jumped back on the bike and the pair rode off. Because of his serious injuries, the victim was taken to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital for treatment.

At 12 noon on April 21, a 3-man police team consisting of Sattahip Superintendent , Pol.Col.Suphathee Boonkrong, Deputy Superintendent, Pol.Lt.Col. Siamrat Rung-rueng, and Pol.Maj.Gen. Wanchai Thumthong managed to arrest the two criminals, Messrs Prisorn and Nathawut, in front of the Ambassador Hotel in possession of a grey Honda Wave motorbike that had been used in the crime. Both of them were taken to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital where Mr. Joergen identified them as his assailants.

Mr. Prisorn confessed to the police that he and Mr. Nathawut had attempted to rob Mr. Rasmusen to get money to buy powder to play with the girls on Wan Lai, (Songkran Festival). Police duly recorded the confession and the two accused will be processed according to the law.
