An Indian man suffered a stab wound to the neck during an altercation with a compatriot in Nongprue.
Rana Sandip Raisin, 27, suffered a gash from a broken bottle under the right ear and other injuries in the Jan. 23 fight at a 10-unit commercial building opposite of Soi Pornprapanimit 16 in Nongprue’s Moo 6 village.
Raisin told police he was attacked by Nahun Chama, 26, who lived in the three-story building, after he and two Indian friends came to the building to discuss a problem with their fellow countryman.
Nahun Chama told police he only slashed Rana Sandip Raisin’s neck with a broken Pepsi bottle in self-defense.
The discussion turned into an argument and Raisin claims Nahun attacked him. He ran out of the building and sought help from people at the nearby Joe-Tam-Yam restaurant.
Nahun told police he had earlier declined an invitation to go out drinking with Raisin and the other men, but the three had showed up at his doorstep to cause problems. He only slashed Raisin in self-defense, he contended.
Police were still sorting out the stories before deciding if assault charges would be brought. In the meantime, however, the passports and visas of all the foreigners would be checked to determine if they were in the country legally.
