Man charged for vicious beating of woman in Patong

Man charged for vicious beating of woman in Patong

PHUKET: Patong Police have confirmed that a man has been charged for viciously beating a woman in a karaoke car park in Patong late last month.

By The Phuket News

Thursday 11 May 2023, 12:22PM

The incident came to public notice after a video from CCTV footage showing the beating was posted online by Patong Police. The video post was later removed, understandably due to the graphic images shown as the man carried out his attack.

Pol Lt Col Pairat Jitrapirom of the Patong Police Station yesterday identified the man and woman in the incident as Thai man “Warunyoo”, 30, and his girlfriend “Ms Narisara”, 40.

The attack occurred just before 1am on Apr 25. The video posted, which lasts 2 minutes 45 seconds, showed Warunyoo approaching Ms Narisara as she pulled up in front of the karaoke, which was described by police in the initial post as “near the Patong Bay Hill Hotel”.

Warunyoo is seen pointing and shouting at Ms Narisara as he approached her. Ms Narisara barely had time to dismount her motorbike before Waranyoo landed a full-force punch to her face.

He then proceeds with his attack, holding Ms Narisara by the hair so he can land repeated heavy blows to her face. Overpowered by Waranyoo’s size and strength, Ms Narisara is simply unable to defend herself.

As Ms Narisara falls to the ground, Waranyoo continues to hold her head up by her hair so he can punch her in the face with full force. In just over a minute of continual beating, Waranyoo punches Ms Narisara in the face with full force 29 times. The force of each punch whips her head back as she remains unable to defend herself.

After just over a minute of continual beating, Warnayoo steps away as Ms Narisara collapses onto the ground unconscious. As Waranyoo steps away he removes his shirt, showing several large tattoos on his upper body.

Just 15 seconds later, he walks back to her and kicks her in the back of the head while she remained unconscious on the ground. Again, the force of the kick visibly whips her head forward from the impact.

Waranyoo then walks away, visibly still angry, and motions and speaks with what appears to be the manager of the karaoke venue.

Of note, during the attack, staff from the karaoke venue can be seen approaching Waranyoo and looking on, but not intervening.

Ms Narisara regains consciousness about one minute later. As soon as she lifts herself from the ground Waranyoo returns to recriminate her. She gets up and manages to flee before Waranyoo can resume his attack.

Lt Col Pairat yesterday confirmed that Waranyoo had been charged with assault causing physical injury. The charged was pressed after police received medical confirmation by Patong Hospital of the injuries suffered by Ms Narisara in the attack.

Lt Col Pairat did not elaborate on the extent of Ms Narisara’s injuries.

“The case was filed to the court on Monday, May 1. The man admitted to physical assault and now the court is ordering extra information about Mr Warunyoo, who is currently under probation,” Col Pairat said.

“I am not sure when the court will hand down its sentence. Now, all we can do is wait for the court,” he said.

...12-5: Brit arrested for punching tuk tuk driver. So, we see, foreigners arrested for relatively small matters, compared with what Thai doing. Only foreiners see detention cel inside with chance to die there unguarded. As we see, the RTP functions very discriminating when it comes to enforce the Thai runner laws. They not favor 'light coloured' people.  :-)

25-4: Mr  Winder, drunk/disorderly at Red Light Bangla Rd. Didn't harm anyone, thrown in Patong police cel. died there, unsupervised a few hours later. 11-5: Thai taximotorbike driver, threatens woman + many disregard law charges, fine only. No police detention.11-5: Thai man charged for almost beating woman to death. So far only probation. Was not detained for bestial 'misbehavior!' 1...

It is worth reminding all again of the quote given by Kamala Pete in his comment on the Opinion report of 7 May that "All that is needed for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing".

On the issue of no staff from the karaoke venue looking on but not intervening during this vicious attack, those staff then became enablers of the attacker virtually condoning this attack - on the line of being complicit to this attack.

@SEC2:. "Disgusting things like this" could be repeated to any other person who have family that cares about them. That is who cares. Justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done. That is what makes this agonising report newsworthy.

SEC2 | 12 May 2023 - 15:56:37

This is not news.   I don't think the majority of your readers (and listeners on the radio) care to hear about disgusting things like this.  How about some real informative news.

If RTP officers were real men they would lock this PoS in a cell and beat the living crap out of him to give him a taste of his own medicine. In fact even that is too good for him, hopefully his 'girlfriend' has lots of male relatives who will take real good care of him...

I can only hope that the things this coward did become known to other inmates, and that they pay him back 10-fold.

Another cowardly thug. Disgraceful  that no one was prepared to step in and break this up. He must be 'impotant'.
