The vicious attack at the entrance to a dormitory in Bangkok last Thursday (July 19) was videoed by onlookers who kept telling her to stop, and later posted on Facebook, drawing heavy fire.

Kanchana Sinprasert, 27 was arrested at a house in Sukhothai province on a court warrant on assault charges and was returned to Phahol Yothin Police Station in Bangkok today (July 24). .

The large-framed woman was later taken for a crime re-enactment at SB Place dormitory on Soi Ratchadapisek 36 in Chatuchak district.

Kanchana admitted assaulting her 22-year-old girlfriend Fang (whose full name was withheld), who was sitting at the front of the dormitory, around 1.45am on July 19 in full view of male tenants.

Another woman and a man later came to her rescue.

The video clip showed the assailant shoving the victim and then using a crash helmet to hit her about the face. The attacker dragged the victim by the hair and repeatedly stomped on her, beating her head against the ground several times.

At first I wondered why this was getting so much attention in the Thai media, then I saw the full un-cut video on FB.  This was no assault, this was attempted murder! This scumbag is kicking the poor girl in the head over and over again as she lies barely conscious on the floor and several (male) onlookers do nothing to help.  Rot in jail!
