Farang Assaults Thai Woman at Ubon Ratchathani Mall

He kicked her thighs and left bruises. 500 baht was the punishment.

When: December 26th, 2020

Where: Warin Chamrap, Ubon Ratchathani

Perpetrators: Mr. Tor Sather, Norwegian, 54

Victims: Ms. Om Chan, 26

What: A popular Facebook page in Ubon Ratchathani shared a post of a young woman who was injured by a foreign man who kicked her thighs. The incident happened on December 26th, 2020, in the Warin Chamrap district of Ubon Ratchathani.

The report says that the attacker left the scene and acted like nothing happened. A reporter contacted Ms. Om Chan to clarify the events. She said that her family went shopping at the department store. After shopping, she was pushing a cart by a fried chicken vendor. While looking at the menu, the victim’s mother asked Ms. Om Chan to return to the car.

Ms. Om Chan then pushed a shopping cart, but didn’t know that it belonged to the foreigner. The foreigner walked back and kicked the victim in the left thigh once. Then kicked her a second time. The foreigner paid their bill and left in a Vigo truck.

The report states that they followed up with tourist police and brought Mr. Tor, a Norwegian national, into custody for the assault against Ms. Om Chan.

Ms. Om Chan explained she had no motive or intent to steal Mr. Tor’s property. It was a misunderstanding. Mr. Tor was charged with injury to the body and mind and asked to compensate Ms. Om Chan with 500 baht. The two shook hands and the matter was resolved.

UPDATE: Mr. Tor negotiated with the injured party for a compensation of 30,000 baht (she wanted 40,000 baht). They agreed to not prosecute. The 500 baht fine was to the police. The original report from Kom Chad Luek only mentioned the 500 baht.

My take: 500 baht for a public assault that left welts on a young woman’s legs? If that’s what the two parties agreed to at the mediation with the Ubon police, then I guess that’s justice.
