    70-year-old Australian man allegedly punched in the face by tourist

    A 70-year-old Australian man was allegedly punched in the face by an intoxicated tourist after trying to stop him from fighting with a motorcycle taxi rider.


    The assault took place last night, September 23rd, at an intersection on Soi Buakhao in South Pattaya. The injured elderly man was only identified as Mr. Tony (70) and sustained a non-life threatening injury to his face. He was aided and taken to a hospital by rescue services.

    Local media asked an eyewitness, Mrs. Suwan Jessen (54), about the incident. She said Mr. Tony saw an unidentified foreign tourist quarreling with a motorcycle taxi driver and went to stop the situation from escalating. However, the tourist punched Mr. Tony in the face for his intervention and walked away. The tourist also seemed heavily intoxicated, Mrs. Suwan added.


    Pattaya police said they would question the motorcycle taxi driver for more information and review CCTV cameras around the area.

    That will teach the old fella to mind his own business. Sadly.

    Yeah, sometimes you just have to watch for a while to make sure you are on the right side of the argument.

    And sometimes you don't want to be on the wrong side of a mob of angry Thai men.

    pattaya is undoubtedly the repository of all that is bad about thailand with soi bukkake being its cloaca.

    a magnet for beer swilling meatheads, grasping chickenheads, diseased whores and unsuspecting rubberneckers it is no surprise that the propensity for violence is high once darkness has fallen.

    best avoided by decent upstanding folk. lets hope that this elderly do-gooder has learnt his lesson and now restricts his perambulations to shopping trips and temple visits.

    I assume you worked all this out from your frequent visits.
