A 42-year-old Indian tourist was reportedly assaulted and robbed by a doorman on Walking Street late Tuesday night.
Mr. Singh had been waiting for some Indian friends outside the Rhino A-GoGo at the southern end of Walking Street and taken a seat on a motorcycle parked outside the venue when a doorman at the bar – who may or may not have been the owner of the motorbike – told him to “move away from the bike.”
Pattaya One reports:

The incident developed into a physical fight between the doorman and Mr. Singh who claimed that two other Thai men joined in the alleged assault. He also claimed that a gold necklace worth 75,000 Baht and his wallet which contained 3,000 Baht in cash went missing after the assault.

Police could reportedly later recover the wallet, however not the missing money.
Investigators will now check CCTV footage and interview the bar manager, which “may lead to further legal action” against the bar and the doorman.
