A 30 year old man is in custody following the stabbing of a psychiatric patient in the Bang Ya Phraek sub-district of Phrapradaeng on Saturday. Twenty seven year old Theerayut Phusit died from injuries after being stabbed in the neck near the expressway.
Arrested on a warrant for murder on Sunday was Wachira “Chorn” Kunchorn, a friend of the victim. He had fled to relatives in Chainat. Bloodstained clothing allegedly discarded by Chorn was found outside a factory in Bang Plee.
Chorn claims self defence. He said that the victim had caused trouble at an alcohol shop on one occasion when a knife was drawn. He said that this situation ended with no one hurt.
Later he met Theerayut who was riding a motorcycle on the road by the expressway and asked him what the problem was. He claimed that the victim came at him again with a knife and as he attempted to disarm him he was fatally stabbed in the neck.
Police have dismissed this story and are pressing charges of murder.
Chorn has been detained.
