Taxi driver Mohammad Manoch wanted one million baht in compensation but eventually settled for 40,000 baht, oficers at Kathu Police Station, which oversees Patong, said today.
Khun Mohammad required 36 stitches to his face when slashed with a broken bottle by Khalili Sina, 30, from Iran.
Mr Sina emerged from a 7-Eleven store in Rat-U-Tit 200 Pi Road on January 8 to see his wife in an argument with Khun Mohammad over where their hired jeep had been parked.
Assuming the worst, Mr Sina attacked Khun Mohammad. Khun Mohammad was stitched at Patong Hospital, where Mr Sina was also treated for bruises and a cut hand.
Both men were initially charged with assault but Patong police negotiated a settlement.
There was a time when the pasports of the tourists would have been seized and held until a Phuket court had heard claims and counter-claims.
The couple have now moved on to Malaysia, a Patong officer said.
