Russian man's ear sliced off by flying knife in Patong fish market fight

The incident reportedly happened yesterday (February 13) at the Marine fresh market in Patong.

Mikhail Ryzov, 36, from Russia told rescue workers that he had bought fish from an unnamed vendor for the price of B400; however, Mikhail said that when he paid the vendor with a B1,000 note, he did not get change back and an argument broke out.

Witnesses say Mikhail then punched the vendor, who responded by throwing a knife at Mikhail, whose left ear was sliced off, and right eye slashed as a result.

Locals assisted the man in suppressing blood loss until rescue workers arrived and patched him up before taking him to Patong Hospital, where his ear and eye were stitched back up.

Police have yet to comment on the case.

The Knife throwing was not a good thing. We all agree about that.
However, foreigners have to realize that most of these thai people have not even finished elementary school ( Prathom).
Their thai world vision is very small ( thai bulb thinking), no touch with everything outside Thailand.
( they have free 5 channel thai tv with thai soap things, deeper it not goes in their thinking world).
They work from early till late daily. Housing is mostly 'hot', no airco.
Than sometimes their normal 'balanced mental wire' disconnect.

Give them a smile, pay the exact amount ( as some of them can not calculate well) and when they not in the best mood of the day, ignore it.

Save yourself by just being friendly, there is no Phuket authority doing that preventive. 
They don't give a S... about your wel being on Phuket, just want your tourist money, and when there is a problem they line up for mediation, to get their tea money/percentage of what they can take from you to make their thai countrymen happy.
Always remember, practically as a foreign tourist you are on your own on Phuket.

"Police have yet to comment on the case..." WOW!! That is news! Usually they'll spout off whatever personal opinion they happen to have.

Looks like the Russian man got stitched up twice in the same day !
Rule here is keep calm but be firm and polite because if you upset the natives then some Thai's can loses it,and in a big way.
However most are not looking for trouble just a smile, behave its their country.

Yet another in the litany of reasons why I always carry 500s, 100s, 50s, 20s...1000 baht notes are for tourists who desperately want to get jacked.  If you give the exact amount they ask for...there is literally nothing to fight about.

"Too many Russian low-life thugs strutting around Thailand thinking they own the place."

Just as many other foreigners. Or Russians deserve that more than others? Nuts?
I mean, no matter where he's from, he definitely didn't deserve getting his ear cut. I can't judge who started the fight, I wasn't there. But throwing a knife at someone's head is always wrong.

Too many Russian low-life thugs strutting around Thailand thinking they own the place.

You go to foreign country assaulting the locals, don't expect them to bend over.  

Good on the Thai fish monger who expertly put the Russian in his place.

Yeah... great point Kimple... in which case that damn Russian deserved to have that knife thrown at his face.  I mean, we're talking about possibly 1,000 baht! I mean really, could you EVER imagine throwing a sharp knife at another person's face... especially in a crowded market setting..?  Utterly insane!

Maybe the vendor didn't get any money? The buyer could be lying about the B1,000 bill...
