Phuket shooting target no angel

PHUKET: The intended Danish victim of the Soi Sansabai shooting on Tuesday, in which two innocent German tourists were wounded, was apparently no angel.

Police have named the Dane as Dennis Mark Knudsen, also known as “Dannie” or “Mike Chilli”.

The hefty 24-year-old body-builder made the news briefly in September when he was arrested in Pattaya after renting a big bike in Phuket on June 1, and then demanding the owner pay him for its return.

On September 20, the PattayaOne news site reported, “Mr Knudsen is alleged to have rented a motorbike from a shop in … Phuket … and failed to return the vehicle in accordance with the rental agreement.

“When the owner of the bike contacted Mr Knudsen, he is alleged to have demanded money otherwise the bike would not be returned.

“The case was reported to Kathu Police Station on August 27 and an arrest warrant … was issued on the same day by Phuket Provincial Court.

“The arrest of Mr Knudsen was made at an unspecified apartment in Pattaya. He will now be transferred to Kathu Police Station for processing.”

After he was sent back to Phuket, Knudsen was released on bail, but then failed to turn up at court for hearings of his case.

On Tuesday (January 22) Knudsen was allegedly shot at by Australian biker John Cohen who, with his partner Mark Shea, had been looking for the Dane and spotted him on the back of a motorbike taxi.

Cohen missed Knudsen and instead hit two innocent German tourists, who had to be hospitalised with arm and shoulder wounds.

After their arrest, Cohen and Shea said Knudsen owed them a million baht – B380,000 for a big bike and the remainder in interest – and had paid them nothing. Earlier on Tuesday morning a court confirmed that they were entitled to the sum.

When asked whether the bike involved in the Pattaya case and the one underlying the shooting in Soi Sansabai were different bikes or the same one, an investigator working on the shooting case said he did not know.  

Both Australian men were refused bail on Thursday.
