The man has been charged with causing harm to others after allegedly slashing three other men with a pocket knife.

Speaking to The Phuket News today (Jan 22), Capt Chamnan Sapsin, an inspector from the Karon Police who was on duty at the time of the incident, said, “Four Thai men were involved in a fight at the Kata Centre at 2:14am on Sunday morning (Jan 21).

“At the scene I found three men lying down on the floor injured. Another man was still at the scene holding a pocket knife.

The three men had only sustained minor slashes to their bodies but were sent to Patong Hospital and Vachira Phuket Hospital as a precaution,” he said.

“The knife man had also sustained injuries during the fight. He has been charged with causing harm to others.

“I am not yet sure whether any further charges will be pressed against any party involved in this incident, this will be decided by the investigator Maj Pattiwat Yodkwan,” Capt Chamnan explained.
