A 36-year-old Dutch tourist fell from a 4th-floor balcony at the KTK Royal Residence hotel on Pattaya Klang Soi 12 a.k.a. Soi AR Monday morning.
Mr Dirk Hasenoot survived the most likely accidental plunge badly injured and is currently being treated for a number of head and shoulder injuries at the Bangkok Hospital Pattaya.
An Indian tourist in Pattaya was reportedly robbed off over 15,000 Baht by two Thai women riding a motorcycle in the early hours of Sunday. Incidentally, the robbery occurred on Soi 9 off Pattaya Beach Road just behind the local police station.
But what makes this case even more unusual than the oddish scene of the crime is that this wasn’t just a routine snatch-and-grab theft (these occur all too regularly on the streets of Pattaya) but the women allegedly threatened their victim with a knife.
You think Thai girls working in the same bar are really all good friends and “sisters”? Nope. There’s actually a lot of competition and jealousy among the girls, with especially “new ladies” finding it hard to fit in when low season is as low as this year and not many Farangs will “bar fine” them.
Only in January this year two girls from an A-GoGo bar at Jomtien thrashed it out after the end of their shift, leaving one girl badly injured after her colleague stabbed her with a corkscrew.
Now a GoGo dancer from an unnamed bar on Soi 6 repeatedly stabbed a colleague in the face with a broken bottle after the “new” girl had allegedly pointed at her with her feet – a serious insult in Thai culture.
