    Chilean man injured, suffers broken nose, after being attacked by Pattaya taxi motorb

    A Chilean man has filed a report to the Pattaya City Police after appearing to be assaulted by a Pattaya taxi motorbike driver early this morning (February 25th).


    Mr. Salvatore Andres Castromedina, 24, a Chilean national, filed a report around 2:00 A.M. this morning to Captain Puttarak Sornkamharn of the Pattaya City Police. He had broken his nose and his clothes and face were covered in blood.


    He explained to police via an interpreter, “I came out from a night club on Pattaya Walking Street after it was closed.”

    “I wanted to go to Soi Buakhao but the taxi motorbike driver attacked me while we were discussing the price. I went to the Pattaya Police Station with another taxi motorbike to file a police report.”


    The victim can be seen on CCTV video that was viewed by The Pattaya News having what appeared to be a calm discussion with two taxi drivers on Walking Street when the victim appears to be assaulted without provocation by one taxi driver. He was later taken to a hospital for medical assistance following a police report being filed.


    Police went to the scene of the incident on Walking Street where they found fresh bloodstains on the ground. Police checked CCTV footage nearby and have now released the footage to The Pattaya News which can be found on our social media channels like Tiktok and Facebook or just click here.


    The suspect, who was wearing a taxi motorbike shirt, appears to be sitting with the Chilean man before the taxi driver stood, assaults the victim, and proceeds to kick the Chilean’ man in the face multiple times, based on CCTV footage released to The Pattaya News.

    Police are continuing their investigation to find the suspect to face legal action.

    He asked for a ride to the motosai? The nerve!

    Next week maybe, a motosai praised for returning fanny bag full of money, gold and diamonds to a distressed "tourist".

    Young , drunk and out in Pattaya. The guy obviously said something offensive to the taxi man. But he should be used to that by now. No reason to start breaking ppl's noses. What an ass

    The drunk sits beside the taxi driver. Then he gets elbowed. The taxi driver is a martial artist

    It looked like the Chilean tried to tickle or prod him.

    Someone should tip off seekingaslyum, he can file a lawsuit against the lot of them.

    During my time here in Thailand I have heard about farangs being assaulted and on most occasions it has been well deserved for acting like obnoxious twats.

    In my 35 years here the only issues I have had which may have turned violent has been with other farangs.

    Until today I have never had an issue with a Thai that could have turned nasty.
