Threatened with machete, Sattahip wife turns it on husband


A Sattahip woman whose drunk husband threatened her with a machete snatched it away from him and slashed him across the arm and head.

Sompong Deewangyang, 40, was transported to Queen Sirikit Naval Medical Center with two bloody wounds after the marital altercation at his Sukhumvit Soi 41 home.

The intoxicated Phitsanulok native told police that he and wife, Pranom Singsom, 51, got into a serious argument. He admitted he threatened her with the machete.

But Pranom was quicker than her drunken mate and turned the blade on him in self-defense before running away. Police are trying to track her down.
