“I fell on on the road while they sped away. Both of them have small tattoos with blue ink on their faces,” Ms Shnyreva said.

“Ms Shnyreva told us that she can remember both men’s faces and told us the description of the tattoos on their faces,” Col Sanit said.

“We will also check CCTV footage from Thepkrasattri Rd to see if we can find a match. We hope to find these suspects soon.”
