Maj Charan Srisarak of Khao Lak Police Station, who was notified of the incident at about 12:50am, explained that investigations revealed that the suspect, 28-year-old Chanin Intharong, had parked his motorbike outside Monster’s Bar in Khao Lak as the bar was preparing to close.

He got off the motorbike and approached a woman at the bar who was sitting with two men, one of whom was Australian, Wayne William Marks, 44.

“Chanin demanded that the woman, Kamonthip Nambut, take off her T-shirt and give it to him as the T-shirt belonged to his girlfriend and she had not paid for it,” Maj Charan said.

“Kamonthip said that she would return the T-shirt later as she was not able to take it off at the time.”

A scuffle broke out as Chanin tried to pull the T-shirt off, so Mr Marks confronted Chanin to protect Kamonthip.

“As Chanin was subdued, he pulled out a knife and stabbed Mr Marks 12 times in the arms, stomach, back and collarbone before fleeing on the motorbike,” Maj Charan explained.

Police arrived to find Wayne lying on the floor bleeding from multiple stab wounds. He was taken to Takua Pa Hospital to be treated.

Police later tracked down Chanin and apprehended him in front of Build Factory nightclub in Khao Lak. He was found in possession of a six-inch flick knife.

“Chanin was taken to Khao Lak Police Station where he admitted to the stabbing but claimed he did it in self-defence,” Maj Charan reported.

“We are still investigating to uncover the full details of the incident,” he explained. “We will soon resume interviewing witnesses.”

“Right now Chanin is being held at Takua Pa Provincial Court pending further investigations. He has been charged with attempted murder and carrying a knife in public.

“Mr Marks is in a stable condition now; he was released from the ICU room last night and remains at the hospital. I have not interviewed him yet as he needs to rest,” Maj Charan added.

Thai Government should show respect and appreciation to this Australian man who was defending a thai lady against a thai murderess mind setting man who not should walk free on the roads. Mentally he is a danger to anyone, has no feelings about good and right. A non guided projectile.

For safety reasons, next time I sit with a thai lady for a drink, I bring her a t-shirt, and ask to change before we drink/chat. Better safe than sorry.  Don't want to be stabbed 12 times by a 'self defence' idiot, just because of a t-shirt.

I agree with CJ69 100%. However, there is a good chance that like 
the several 100K or millions of Thai People, Khun Chanin had previously suffered a Severe TBI due to the Thai Govt's totally useless Motorcycle Helmet Laws. Frontal Cerebral Brain Injury. Read all about Anger & Depression.

Anyone who believes you can stab someone 12 times in "self-defense" is overdue for a spell in the loonie-bin themselves. This was attempted murder plain and simple, throw the book at him. And over a t-shirt! This guy needs removing from society.
