A 16 year old boy stabbed a Pattaya convenience store employee with a knife after suspecting he was secretly talking to his girlfriend. Police were alerted to the stabbing yesterday at 12.36am.

Chonlawit Athisansee, a Deputy Inspector at Pattaya City Police Station, received a report of the stabbing at a convenience store in Nong Prue, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri Province.

Emergency services from Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Rescue Centre were dispatched to the scene. The victim, 19 year old convenience store employee Kritsana sustained a shoulder injury, and first aid was administered at the scene while the assailant fled.

Kritsana explained that while he was working at the counter, the attacker leapt over and stabbed him in the shoulder before fleeing the scene. The Thai police were promptly notified and began their investigation.

Police officers later apprehended the perpetrator, A, who confessed to the Pattaya stabbing and cited jealousy as the motive. A believed the victim had been secretly communicating with his girlfriend, which enraged him and led to the attack.

“I was overcome with jealousy and believed that Kritsana was secretly talking to my girlfriend. In a fit of rage, I decided to confront him at his workplace and stabbed him.”

Chonlawit, handling the case, has detained the suspect for further questioning and will proceed with legal charges.

The Pattaya stabbing underscores the severe consequences of unchecked emotions and the importance of addressing jealousy and anger healthily. The police have urged the public to remain vigilant and report suspicious activities to prevent such violent events occurring in the future.

Members of the local community are expressing their disbelief and urging for stronger measures to ensure safety and security in public places. As the investigation continues, authorities are expected to provide updates on the legal proceedings and additional measures to prevent similar occurrences in the future, reported Khaosod.
