    Enraged Briton Allegedly Pushes his Wife Off 8th Floor Balcony

    A 56 year-old Briton was detained in Rayong Thailand for allegedly pushing his wife from the balcony of their 8th floor condo. His wife luckily landed on the 7th floor suffering a broken ankle and various other injuries.


    According to police and onlookers the Briton then ended up praying for hours on the balcony.


    Officials at Ban Chang Police Station were called to the scene yesterday along with Immigration Police, Crime Suppression Officials, and the local rescue team.

    Upon arrival police and rescue workers found Ms. Sukanda 56 on the 7th floor of the condo still conscious. She was screaming in pain yelling that her English husband had thrown her off their balcony.


    The local rescue team then rushed her to the Ban Chang Hospital in Rayong.


    Police then tried to communicate with the Briton, however he just kept praying on the condo balcony for hours. No matter what officials said the man never responded, he just kept on praying with his hands placed in front of his chest.


    Police were able to contact one of the Briton’s friends and ask for his assistance. Upon his arrival he said the mans name was Dave. He shouted to Briton Dave on his balcony. After 2 hours of communicating with Dave, he opened his door and allowed officials in to talk.


    Once the man had calmed down and revealed that the couple was having a fight when his wife fell off their balcony.


    According to Thai Media police would interview his wife Sukanda once she had recovered at hospital. Ms. Sukanda was critically injured with a fractured hip, a dislocated arm and a broken ankle.


    Thai media reported the Briton (Dave) had legally entered the country but couldn’t return to England due to Covid-19. Dave revealed that staying in the condo for months has caused high stress and tension, resulting in the fight with his wife.

    Police have not charged the Briton with any offence and are awaiting his wifes testimony.

    Looking at 'Dave', I'm gonna guess that this 'revelation' is not exactly how it went down.

    If it had been the 9th floor it would have been another storey. Pun intended.

    It looks like "Dave" has been keeping in good shape during the lockdown. And his shorts suggest he might be into Thai boxing. Perhaps he mistook his wife for a punchbag or kickbag.

    Looks like a picture of devout adherence to Buddhism, don't he? Bet he even had a bottle of red Fanta on his bird table.

    According to local news reports he was arrested today in Bangkok. Presumably she is pressing charges.

    Briton arrested for allegedly throwing Thai wife off 8th floor balcony

    Immigration police chief Pol Lt-General Sompong Chingduang on Wednesday (May 27) announced the arrest of Briton David John Marshall, 47, who fled the scene after allegedly throwing his Thai wife Sukanda (last name withheld) off the eighth floor of a condo in Rayong province.

    “The incident took place on April 28 at Ban Chang Cliff Beach Condotel in Rayong,” said Sompong. “The victim survived, because her fall was broken by the balcony on the seventh floor, but suffered serious injuries. She also told officers that her husband had forcefully detained her in the room for several days.”

    Police reportedly tracked the suspect down to Baron Residence Hotel in Bangkok’s Soi Lad Phrao 130 using the biometric scanning system. The suspect had allegedly jumped from hotel to hotel in Bangkok.

    Marshall reportedly confessed to assaulting his wife because she was threatening to leave him for another man after he had put all his assets in her name. Rayong court had issued an arrest warrant against Marshall for attempted murder and holding someone against their will.

    So which is it?

    Hanging around and praying for a few hours is hardly fleeing the scene.

    He did a bunk to Bangkok

    Did you see in Bangkok Pat's secrets of Lad Phrao YT vid; where he cuts the camera off when something finally interesting is about to happen?

    Fast forward to 6.00 minutes where the fuzz are all over the place...

    YouTube

    I bet thats the b.i.b on the tail of the OP and Pat's missed the scoop, waffling on about parks and black dogs.

    I assume they mean when they swipe your biometric passport and pass the details to immigration (TM30).
