Just after midnight, on October 9, Pattaya police received reports of a stabbing in Soi Pattaya Park, South Pattaya.
At the scene thirty-six year old Russian, Ms Sonia Greenburg, had been stabbed in the stomach and was screaming in pain. She was rushed to Pattaya Memorial Hospital for emergency treatment.
Officers then arrested Mr Oleg Martynov (60), another Russian, owner of the Pecktopah Restaurant, opposite the crime scene. He was taken to Pattaya Police Station.
Mrs. Patchama Krachaem, (57) a witness and Ms Greenburg’ s employee, said that Ms. Greenburg is the owner of Pizzora S-125 Restaurant nearby.
She said that they used to be business partners at Pecktopah but left to open their own restaurant after a ‘disagreement.’
Since then Ms Greenburg, who is a friendly lady, has been very busy as her new restaurant is popular with many regular customers. Meanwhile Pecktoman has been very quiet as nobody goes there anymore.
Recently, she said, Mr Martynov came by and threatened Ms Greenburg and so they made a statement at Pattaya Police Station.
Today, as Ms Greenburg was walking home from work, Mr Martynov confronted her and stabbed her in the stomach before running away.
