Six men were arrested for assaulting the owner of a convenience store who fired one of their wives.
Kriangkrai Chanapal, 29, and five friends were apprehended around 3 a.m. March 23 near the intersection of Second and Central Roads. Kriangkrai’s wife, Sroisurin Chanaphal, 28, escaped with the victim’s purse.
Sodsai Khajornwanitchot, 51, told police she was attacked by Kriangkrai’s gang of friends as she was leaving her 7-Eleven store on Soi 13/2. When she fell to the ground, her attackers stole her purse, which contained 7,000 baht, a mobile phone, documents and two ATM cards. She was treated for her injuries at Bangkok Hospital Pattaya.
Police arrested six men for their cowardly assault on 51-year-old woman.
Police were able to arrest the half-dozen men, but Sroisurin escaped with Sodsai’s purse in the commotion. Investigators said the attack and robbery occurred after Sodsai fired Sroisurin for stealing a co-worker’s mobile phone.
