Police said they are looking for a van driver accused of assaulting and robbing a foreign passenger Tuesday in Chonburi province.

Irish national Ciaran Duffy said he was the last passenger in a van going from Pattaya to Bangkok earlier today when the driver – who remains unidentified – demanded he pay an exorbitant fare of 2,000 baht, police 1st Lt. Panisa Kuncharin said. Duffy refused.

“The driver wanted 2,000 baht, so he yelled at him, like, telling him, ‘Fuck you!’” Panisa, an officer at Chonburi City Police Station, told reporters. “So the driver shoved him out of the vehicle and took away 2,500 baht.”

Duffy, a 25-year-old teacher at a school in the Minburi district, suffered minor injuries when he fell. A Pattaya-Bangkok van ride usually costs less than 200 baht.

A bystander spotted the altercation and took Duffy, who works as an English teacher, to file a complaint at the police station. Panisa said police have obtained an image of the van’s license plate and are looking for the driver.

“This is considered a case of robbery,” the officer said.

She added that Duffy was in a hurry to teach his class in time, so he would meet with police later to give further details about the incident.

Interprovincial vans are known for their frequent accidents and sometimes erratic drivers.

  • Peer of the Realm

    I can imagine that 2,500 is a lot of money for an unqualified English teacher who can barely speak English, as this type usually are. That’s about 15% of their monthly salary.

      • Peer of the Realm

    Mr Duffy… you have been duffed, and how did the driver manage to get his hands on your 2500 baht while shoving you out at the same time, one hand shoving and one hand grabbing your dosh?

  • Cosa

    There are some very sad and bitter indivduals on this forum. Because the word ‘Irish’ was mentioned, we have had derogatory comments of ‘Mick’ ‘Paddy’ can’t speak English, slob…..
    Disgusting sterotyping from bitter, sad, racist old men who are annoyed at everyone in the world, especially Thai ladies who ease their pensions off them.

    • Sexy Soi Six

      yes, i agree some of these pommy racist t the max old codgers have gone stale and need to wake up to themselves probably starting by getting of the booze and two packs a day ciggs and daily 7/11. 22 baht hotdogs for dinner . the biggest worry these fat slobs is whether the elevator in there view talay condo block is working they might have to shuffle down the stairs from there 22nd story worrying if they might miss out on the start of happy hour at cheap charlies beer bar .

      • Cosa

        You agree do you? You seem to be the instigator, you have posted several times on here and used the aforementioned derogatory and sterotypical phrases.

        All this hatred you have to other nationalities must stem from your user profile name, spending too much time there I suspect.

        You sir, are a class A troll, with nothing better to do, seriously man grow up and stop all the bitter hatred. Good luck in the future.
