Jealous Thai man: A one on one fight broke out in Soi Yen Sabai, Pattaya, after a 45 year old Thai man saw an Omani national talking to his girlfriend.
The Thai man, named as Ratchawee Chomsawek, reportedly confronted his girlfriend Orawan, 34, who then left the scene around 1.30 am. She had told him that the Omani man she was talking to was just an acquaintance but he was drunk and wouldn’t listen.
When she returned later she found Ratchawee face down in the street with blood coming from his mouth.
Medics were called and Ratchawee was given CPR before he was taken to Muang Pattaya Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
