A monk has just gone from one temple to another after he kicked a mentally ill man who hurt his son.

Video of the attack posted on social media shocked netizens and led Daily News reporters to the temple of Wat Suansom in Phrapadaeng, Samut Prakarn.

Abbot’s helper Phra Adisak said that the man responsible for kicking “Bird” – a guy being treated for mental illness – was Sathit aged 38. He got cross after Sathit’s 6 year old son came to ordain at the temple and got involved in some over the top play that hurt the little boy.

But Sathit was no longer at the temple. 

Bird’s mother had filed a police complaint against Sathit who was in charge of development at the temple and had been there for two years.

It was agreed that charges would be dropped if Sathit left town and transferred to another temple. 

He is now a monk at Wat Nai in Chonburi.
