From the Phuket news link“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.
