Somsak Naudom, also known as Bang Run, allegedly admitted he kicked the child while he was walking near Ramkhamhaeng Soi 83/5 on Ramkhamhaeng Rd last Sunday afternoon (Jan 14), police said.

He explained that he was stressed out.

Surveillance cameras caught clear footage of the attack and police used it to track him eventually to Chachoengsao, where he was arrested yesterday (Jan 16).

When questioned at Hua Mak Police Station in Bangkok he said he was stressed at the time, and gave conflicting accounts of the incident, according to police. They planned to contact his father to see if he had information that could help, and the suspect would be medically examined to assess his mental condition.

His action drew heavy criticism on social media, after a video recorded by a passing car was posted online, showing he kicked the boy in the head as he walked passed, knocking him down, for no apparent reason.

The boy’s grandmother rushed him to a hospital where doctors found he had swelling to the head and advised his condition be closely monitored at home.
