A Thai man who allegedly didn’t pay his tab at a Naklua karaoke bar was shot and beaten by suspected bar security thugs.
Somkiat Tamnai, 32, was hot in the leg and suffered contusions to the face in the 3:45 a.m. Friday, March 4 assault. He was taken to Banglamung Hospital for treatment.
Witnesses said Somkiat, a security guard at a housing development on Soi Wat Thungkrad was pursued by as many as five men from a Sukhumvit Road bar near the Jae Muay garage. Three shots were fired and the victim fell into the road. The thugs then fled.
Police interviewed karaoke bar staff who were uncooperative in identifying the gunmen, saying only that Tamnai hadn’t paid his bill.
