An out of work man in Nakorn Sawan said he held up a 7-Eleven store earlier in the week because he was hungry.
Ritthiporn Pinthong, 22, had only eaten plain rice for the last seven days, he told the cops.
On Tuesday he went into the store in Muang district with a shirt over his head armed with a cleaver and demanded cash from two terrorized staffers. He got 4,500 baht.
Then he went and paid his rent, water and electric bills……and bought some food.
Using CCTV the police soon traced him to his rented room two kilometers away. He had only 300 baht left when the law arrived.
He said he had lost his job and his mum wouldn’t bail him out and seeing as the rent was due and he’d had nothing with his rice for a full week he decided to rob the store.
He has been charged with armed robbery at night and detained.
