German ex-pat tied up, beaten and robbed in Phuket

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.

A 70-year-old German was tied up and his arm slashed by two men with knives who robbed him and his Thai wife of two ATM cards at their house in Muang district on Thursday evening.

Chuthaporn Chudam, 50, told police that returned to her house in tambon Rassada around 5pm and discovered two Thai men, aged 20-25 years, carrying knives inside her house.

She saw her German husband, Wilhelm Christian Schrei, 70, was tied up with black tape and had knife cuts on one of his arms.

The two robbers demanded the couple hand over their valuables. Ms Chuthaporn said they did not have any, so the men took their two ATM cards and the PIN codes.

The robbers fled via the back door around 5.20pm, she said, and she called police.

Mr Schrei was taken to Bangkok Hospital Phuket, police said.

Ms Chuthaporn said she phoned the banks to have the two accounts frozen, and was informed that 1,900 baht cash had been withdrawn from her Kasikornbank account at 5.46pm.

Police were investigating. – Bangkok Post

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

60 USD? F#cktards would have done better stealing an IPhone 4 if they could find one.
