PHUKET: Dramatic security camera footage of a beating and stabbing by a gang of four teens has helped Phuket police to quickly capture all gang members.

Silert Pong-Arun, 24, was stabbed in the stomach with a sharpened steel rod and bashed with a length of wood outside the Chalerm Air air conditioning store in Moo 2, Karon, about 8pm on Thursday.

The security camera footage shows the gang members repeatedly kicking him and beating him as he lay on the ground.

Khun Silert was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket City and treated for his wounds. According to police, he was drunk and something he said provoked the gang to attack.

After viewing security camera footage from the shop, officers from Karon Police Station questioned 19-year-old Amorn Patkor about 2.30pm yesterday.

Amorn lives near the shop. Soon after, police were able to arrest two 16-year-old youths and a 17-year-old.

As minors their identity cannot be revealed. All four have confessed and were due to appear in court today.

These images are truly shocking both in their content and in their quality let us hope the company that is involved in fitting CCTV cameras in patong and around the island at great expence aren't the same out fit that installed, maintained and operated this unit it's like something from the 1950's .
I wish the young man a speedy recovery and a long jail term for his gang of spineless attackers as is the want in Thailand multiple attackers against one lone victim a cowardly act for sure.

What a sad state of affairs with todays youth

If young people only understood that our time on this earth is so short that they are wasting it away on such petty behavior

Wish Thailand's judicial system would consider trying teens as adults on a case-by-case basis.
