Wichit Police were notified yesterday afternoon (May 17) that a foreign man was destroying property inside a room at the Nature Spa in Wichit.

Tourist Police and Kusoldharm rescue workers arrived at the scene to find a Russian man, name and age unknown, still destroying property in the spa.

Due to the man’s size and how he was acting it took officers and rescue workers some time to calm and stop the man. Once they had managed to do so it was decided to restrain him with chains, he was then placed in an ambulance and taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

Officers reported that the man’s actions had caused damage to a large number of items in the spa room including a table, cabinet, jars, books, and electrical equipment and that the damage was estimated to be tens of thousands of baht.

“Staff at the spa had attempted to stop the man but were unsuccessful and they were very frightened by the incident,” an unnamed officer said.

Police have confirmed that they will investigating the incident further and that the man’s relatives were discussing with the spa owner about covering the cost of the damage caused.
