A man angry that his girlfriend had to work instead of joining him for Loy Krathong was arrested for attempting to slash her throat.
Montree Ainnian, 47, was captured inside Central Festival Pattaya Beach following the Nov. 25 attack outside Heaven Massage on Second Road at Soi 3. Police said he had tossed the knife away while fleeing.
Manee Chansaeng, 35, suffered a 10-centimeter cut to her throat and was treated at nearby Pattaya International Hospital.
Montree Ainnian allegedly slit the throat of his ex-girlfriend because she refused to go on a Loy Krathong date with him.
The Songkla native allegedly attacked his girlfriend who he had worked at the massage parlor with until 10 days earlier. The two had quarreled a lot recently and Manee declined his invitation to go out on Loy Krathong, saying she had to work.
The two got into another argument and Montree allegedly threatened her to come with him at knifepoint. When she still refused to go, he reportedly attacked her.
