“Good Samaritan” Tony got punched in the face by an unidentified man for trying to stop an argument in Soi Buakhao.

A 70-year-old Australian got punched in the face after butting into an argument between a foreigner and taxi driver in Pattaya.

Identified only as “Tony”, the Aussie was punched once around 11 p.m. at a Soi Buakhao motorcycle-taxi stand by an unidentified man who fled the scene.

Witness Suwan Jensen, 54, said Tony had tried to break up an argument between the motorcycle-taxi driver and the foreigner, who appeared to be drunk.

Tony was sent to Pattaya Hospital for a checkup.
