A mother has claimed that her two year old son was knocked unconscious by a police volunteer wielding a truncheon last night.

The parents of the child were going out to eat in Soi Khao Talo, Pattaya, when they saw a police checkpoint and doubled back on their motorcycle to avoid a fine.

Kanya Tomklang, 25, said that a man dressed in black jumped out of the shadows and attacked them hitting her son Sila Ninkham or “Sam” aged just two. 

She said that the man was still not satisfied with what he had done – he raised his baton to strike again as the husband and father kicked out to prevent further injury. 

The family managed to get away. 

They rushed to a clinic but finding it close made their way to Bang Lamung Hospital where the child was given three stitches to a serious head wound. 

As The Pattaya News reporters spoke to the mother the child began vomiting and was transferred to another hospital for more urgent treatment. 

The mother had said: “We just wanted to avoid a fine – is it that serious that it warrants this?”

Posters on the news site on Facebook urged the family to go to the government watchdog Damrongtham for justice. One poster who called the police “dogs” had more than 100 likes. 

The story was widely shared. 

More about this incident as we hear of it.
