Police arrested a Thai man on Soi Nori, Pattaya-Naklua road after he had robbed and stabbed a 39 year old Indian man.
The injured Indian told police that he was an importer of electric devices and mobile phones from China and that at about 10am that morning the Thai man had contacted him to buy a phone with a budget of 1500 baht.
They met in Soi 17 near the harbour in Naklua, the Indian presented five different phones for the Thai man to choose from.
The Assailant demonstrates how he threatened the phone seller.
However that Thai man pulled a knife and demanded all the phones, the Indian resisted and in the ensuing brawl he ended up with cuts on his ear, head and fingers.
The Thai then escaped with the phones, 3,000 baht, 400 US dollar and the Indian’s motorbike.
However the police were able to track down the Thai man who confessed to the crime saying he knew the Indian man carried a lot of money which he wanted, to pay for his children’s education.
At least now his children will learn that crime does not pay.
