A British man was beaten by 8 Thais in a case of apparent road rage in East Pattaya Thursday.
Gary Bern, 60, told police he was driving his motorbike on Soi Nok Khao when he accidentally swerved in front of a minibus, but did not cause an accident.
However, a few minutes later, the minibus returned, followed by a green pickup. The vehicles cut him off and seven men and a woman jumped out, attacked him and stole his bag, which contained 5,000 baht.
Witness Kanokrak Iamkham, 50, corroborated Bern’s story and gave police the license plate of the minibus, but police could not locate it.
A battered and bruised Gary Bern stands with police officers at the scene of the attack.
