A police officer went on a frenzied rampage in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, leaving an elderly woman fatally stabbed and another seriously injured. The incident occurred yesterday, February 24, when the officer, reportedly suffering a mental breakdown, charged out of a police flat, kicked over a motorcycle carrying two women, and attacked them with a knife.

Eyewitnesses describe a scene of chaos near the Cha-uat police station, only a few metres away from where the officer lived. The two victims, both 60 years old, were riding their motorcycle when the assailant, armed with a bloodied knife, struck with lethal intent. While one woman lay dead at the scene, the other was critically wounded and rushed to Cha-uat Hospital before being transferred to Maharaj Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital due to the severity of her injuries, reported KhaoSod.

Rescue services from Cha-uat, identified by their unit number 02/011, responded swiftly to the assault. In the aftermath, the police was apprehended by his colleagues and taken into custody at the police station. The Provincial Police Region Chief, Somchai Tortrakul, has since taken charge of the investigation.

The victim, Nittaya Pimthong, was rushed to hospital with several cut wounds on her arms. She is in stable condition after receiving six stitches on her left arm and 10 stitches on her right arm. The 31 year old injured woman told Amarin TV that she always feared an attack while travelling alone and, sadly, it became a reality for her.

Nittaya explained to the police and media that she had accompanied her foreign husband to Isaan province in Nakhon Ratchasima, and subsequently opted to visit her mother in Borrabue district, Mahasarakham province after her husband departed for his home country.
