Australian beaten by 7-man gang behind South Pattaya Market
A 52 year old Australian was beaten by a group of 7 young men after he was forced to stop his motorbike behind the South Pattaya Road Market in the early hours of Tuesday.
Mr. Edward Spiller made his way to Pattaya Police Station after the incident and was assisted by his transsexual partner who was with him at the time.
He explained to Police that the pair were riding back to Mr. Spiller’s apartment when a group of 7 men on three motorbikes drove past them and appeared to stare at Mr. Spiller before driving off.
At the end of the street the gang had set-up a roadblock forcing Mr. Spiller to stop his bike. He was the set-upon by the gang and one of them attempted to steal his motorbike but Mr. Spiller was able to prevent the theft.
The group then drove off in the direction of Pattaya Third Road and Mr. Spiller made his way to the Police Station. Minor injuries were sustained to the Australian and nothing of value was stolen from him during the attack.
