Two women in full face helmets attacked a woman and her boyfriend with acid in broad daylight on a Chumpon beach yesterday.

The woman was severely hurt and is in hospital while the boyfriend survived largely unscathed.

imageEarlier Moo, 39, and his girlfriend Ta, 43, had arrived on a motorcycle at a restaurant on Thung Wua Len beach and had lunch.

After that they borrowed a mat from the restaurant to go and sit together on the beach.

Witnesses said that two women in full face helmets arrived and were nosing around Moo’s bike. Ta came back to the restaurant to get a key she had forgotten then was followed back onto the beach by the women, who were dressed in black.

The women then grabbed Ta’s head from behind and threw acid all over her arms and body. Her face was not hit.

What was left of the acid they threw at her boyfriend before they ran off.

Sanook reported that Moo is well known in the area. They said that he worked at a vehicle detailing shop in Chumpon.

He had been seeing a woman who worked at the same shop who he later found out already had a family and relationship.

Sanook said the attack was borne out of jealousy.

Pa Thiw police are investigating.
