Russian Woman shot and robbed in phuket home.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Just another day in paradise. Once the rule of law breaks down this sort of robbing, looting, shooting and general mayhem will be widespread.

I feel sorry for the handful of honest, hard-working Nigerians; must be tough being a national of a country fool of crooks, scammers, and drug peddlers.

“Ms Kharenko said she was asleep, but was woken by noises in the house, then she saw the suspect.

“The burglar told her to be quiet, but she screamed, so the suspect pointed the gun at her. That’s when she ran into the bathroom to hide and the suspect opened fire at her, hitting her twice,” Lt Chanat said.

The attack occurred at about 3:30am. Police found three .38-calibre bullet casings at the scene: two in the house and one in the garden outside.

Ms Kharenko said she saw only one man in the house, and that his face was not covered, said Lt Chanat.

The burglar made off with cash, a laptop computer and a mobile phone with a total value of B60,000, he added.

“The robber did take a small safe box, which was found discarded nearby,” he said.

The country itself is not so full of them, most travel to do scams elsewhere. they may fool people in other countries, but most Nigerians are very cautious about anything that seems too good to be true.
