It took a brave young Russian tourist to stop a gun-toting biker from attacking a baht bus driver in South Pattaya, but he was severely beaten for his actions.
The event took place early on October 15 in South Pattaya on Soi 15, close to Walking Street. According to witnesses, the attacker was a man riding a white Honda PCX motorcycle and had a bag on his person with a gun visible in his underwear. When a cab driver parked in the way of the motorbike, the armed attacker insulted and threatened the driver, which led to the fight. When the attacker pulled out the gun, things became very dangerous.
Artem Kitaichik, a 27-year-old Russian tourist, saw the drama unfold and bravely tried to stop things from getting worse. He tried to stop the biker with the gun by yelling at him. But the attacker didn’t like that a stranger was getting in the way, so he punched Artem in the face, knocking him to the ground, and then ran away.
The Russian tourist had serious cuts and was bleeding a lot from his mouth. Emergency care was given to him, and he was quickly taken to a nearby hospital. At the same time, the baht bus driver who was involved also left the scene. The police in Pattaya have started an investigation to find the attacker’s belongings and gather proof about the attack.
