A 54-year-old Norwegian man was taken to hospital after he was found with a stab wound to the abdomen in a hotel room in Pattaya
Police and rescue workers were called to a hotel in South Pattaya around 11:30 p.m. Colonel Yuttana Ruangsakul, deputy chief of the Pattaya Crime Squad, said they went to room 409 on the fourth floor.
Inside, they found a seriously wounded Norwegian man, Frank Gjesvold, 54, bleeding from a stab wound to the stomach. He was screaming loudly. Medics gave him first aid before sending him to Pattaya Memorial Hospital.
Police found no signs of violence on the premises. They said they found a bag of dried marijuana leaves and a lighter.
Hotel staff told police that Giesvold had been staying at the hotel for about six months. The night before, they heard yelling in his room. The staff said they knocked on the door and called out to him several times, but he would not open the door. They then used a spare key to open the room and were shocked to see blood spilled on the floor. They called the police.
According to the preliminary version, the man stabbed himself. However, this has not yet been confirmed.
