A former Muay Thai boxer was arrested after allegedly breaking into the apartment of his girlfriend’s relative and punching her in the face.
Santipab Sudawong, 20, was apprehended early April 6 and charged with trespassing, assault and destruction of property after the confrontation at a room behind the Ninja Moo Kratha in South Pattaya.
Natthaporn Tuaytaisong, 27, said she was eating with a friend when the boxer, who went by the moniker “Mafia” while performing in various Muay Thai rings around Pattaya, came to her door, demanding to speak to her about his problems with his girlfriend, a relative of Natthaporn’s.
“He’s the one that punched me in the face,” Natthaporn tells police.
The woman said when she refused to open the glass door, Santipab smashed it with a rock and forced his way in. She alleged he then threatened her with a knife before hitting her above the eye with its handle. The story was confirmed by Natthaporn’s friend, Sarut Panalikul, 28, who called police.
