On Wednesday the 15th of July long term British ex-pat Nolan Pickering was having a nap in his garden in Koh Samui when another British man jumped out from beind his bushes and attacked him. Mr. Pickering was punched in the face by a man wearing a knuckleduster. After the attack Mr. Pickering was rushed to Thai International hospital by friends where he received seven stitches under his eye.
Mr. Pickering told the Samui Times the attacker was a man he had previously rented a house to. There had been some dispute over rent payments and several months ago he was forced to evict him. Since then he has had several altercations with the man who Mr. Pickering believes is using drugs. “He used a mop head to prize open the barbed wire fence surrounding my garden” Mr. Pickering told our reporter, “he must have been creeping around in the bushes, I was just sleeping in my hammock with my hands behind my head, it was a totally unprovoked attack”. He went on to say “I could have lost my eye, and to make matters even worse my three children, one aged 8 and two aged 5, witnessed the attack, they were completely traumatized by it”.
The police were called to the scene of the crime, a house on the Ghost Road in Bangrak, and are now looking for British man Mr. Peter Stirling, the owner of Jezebels Bar in Bangrak in connection with the attack.
