Thailand’s tourist police who are heading the hunt for the assailant have so far failed to bring the 38 year old called “Park” to justice. 

On October 24th the victim – also named Park who is 28 – was stabbed 17 times and left for dead by his red plate BMW. 

Yesterday the victim said that he was still under medical supervision following the savage attack. He told the media that he is offering a 100,000 baht reward for information leading to the capture of the man responsible. 

Pol Lt-Col Piyapong Ensarn said that the tourist police throughout the country are involved in the hunt and that pictures of the man had been circulated. A warrant has been issued. 

Thaivisa notes that more than 4 million Koreans have the surname Park, amounting to about one in twelve of the population. 

Thaivisa also notes that at the time of the attack the police stated that more than one person was involved, a detail now missing from the Sanook story related to the hunt.
