A bartender at a Walking Street go-go bar died after being stabbed during an argument with his longtime waitress girlfriend.
Yordchai Laoointh, 30, died of a stab wound to the left breast at the Alcatraz bar Jan. 30. Near the body was inconsolable 35-year-old Wasitan Saelim who witnesses said stabbed Yordchai, her boyfriend of 10 years and father of her 2-year-old child. A blood-soaked 20 cm. knife was collected as evidence.
Wasitan Saelim admits stabbing Yordchai Laoointh but said she didn’t mean to kill him.
Police said Vasitan, a waitress at the Candy Shop pub across the street from Alcatraz, complained that Yordchai was possessive and abusive and that earlier that evening he’d hit her in a jealous rage while she was working at the Candy Shop.
Officers said she admitted to following her boyfriend back into his bar and stabbing him before tossing the knife aside.
Alcatraz waitresses said they believed Vasitan had not meant to kill the bartender because, immediately after stabbing him, she exploded into tears and tried to give CPR to her lover.
It was too late, however, as the unfortunate blow proved fatal. She was arrested on homicide charges.
