5,000 baht bounty for farang who beat teen toilet attendant in Phuket

Post by buksida » Thu May 18, 2017 2:35 pm



A 5,000 baht bounty has been set for a foreign man who was seen beating a toilet attendant in Phuket’s nightlife district earlier this month.

While police said they have yet to receive a formal complaint over the assault, footage of which went viral on social media, the father of the young man assaulted offered the bounty on Wednesday and said he hopes social media users will help locate the perpetrator.

The father, who spoke to local media without giving his name, said the incident took place May 3 at a toilet facility he owns on Bangla Street, a popular red-light area on Phuket.

Although the victim was widely reported to be 10, the man said his son is 19. He described the attacker as a male white tourist. The attacker refused to pay 10 baht for the toilet, which led to an argument between him and the toilet attendant, the father said.


In the video of the incident, the attacker is seen punching the victim several times, sending the attendant scurrying away.

What a nasty, cowardly bully.
Hope he's caught and given a taste of his own medicine.

All over 10 baht :shock: :tsk:

This guy was definitely in the wrong, but I think there is previous to this. His stance as soon as he arrives tells me he was already wound up, and I doubt it was because he was going to have to pay 10 baht. Also notice that the girl starts the talking. I wonder if there is any video from a previous visit either by the man or woman in the video?

Don't get me wrong; the guy is out of order. However, I think there is more to this.

I appreciate the judgement of members on this forum, without knowing what really happened.
The agressor has already left Thailand and the so called victim refused to file a complain !! WHY ???
That explains everything.

I seriously doubt this happened because of the tourist not wanting to pay 10 baht. In fact, I don't even believe he had any intention of using a toilet. To me, it looks like he arrived there for a different reason altogether, and probably with backup, the other guy who sat his ass down in the chair.

Also, the article says the video shows him punching the guy several times? I may be wrong, but to me, it looks more like he gave the guy a couple of slaps, and then ended with a punch. Still, not nice behavior at all.


On a slightly different note, I wonder if Farangs are allowed to open a public toilet business here? At 10 baht a pop, not a bad little income generator. :duck:

On the couple of run throughs, my perception is that this was over the mans wallet. He can be seen snatching it off the attendant then giving him a few slaps! Perhaps it was lost or stolen while the man was on the loo??

Who knows? I bet there are lots of ways to interpret a short clip when we have not seen what happened earlier.

I think the article stated he snatched the boy's mobile phone while he was trying to make a call, presumably to his father or someone to summon help, not his wallet.

I read that the "kid" was in fact 19 years old and had been using his mobile to secretly film one of the girls in the clip when she used the toilet earlier to urinate.

Yes, now you are getting close to what happened. It is obvious that the Farang asks the "boy" something whilst pointing at and speaking to the girl. And I think that you will find that it is a mobile phone that the kid pulls out of his pocket.

(sorry pagey, didn't see your post)
