A 55-year-old Polish tourist was assaulted by security guards at the newly-opened Skyfall A-GoGo bar at the northern end of Walking Street late Sunday night. The allegedly drunk man had previously been asked to leave the premises but refused and instead became “abusive”.
One of the two bouncers was charged with assault while the bar is now facing the risk of a temporary closure order of 30 days.
Pattaya One reports that the Polish tourist was
asked to leave the bar and refused to leave. The guards claimed he was drunk and abusive and initiated a fight with [one of them]. [The other security guard] ran inside to assist his colleague and eventually the man was taken outside where he was reportedly struck across the head with a steel hook (…)
Ironically, tourist police had raided the bar only hours earlier and drug-tested the staff. No irregularities were found and the venue’s licenses were all found to be in order.
