Man Stabbed to Death in Toilet at Foodland Store After Attempting to Rob Drug Dealers in Bangkok

He set up a deal to buy Tramadol in the toilets.

The victim fled the store and collapsed in a nearby soi.

At around 7PM on March 4th, 2021, police from the Bang Khen police station in Bangkok received a report that a young man was stabbed to death at the Ram Intra branch of Foodland in Bang Khen district.

Investigators reviewed CCTV footage from the stores and found that around 6PM, two men rode a Yamaha Filano and parked in front of Foodland. The victim walked into the store, and the two suspects followed him inside to the toilets.

They confronted the victim and stabbed him in the toilet. The suspects then fled the scene on the Yamaha that they parked out front.

The victim also ran out of the store seeking help. One of the perpetrators was also stabbed in the incident and sought medical treatment in Lad Prao district clinic. Investigators tracked down the suspects there and made the arrests.

The two suspects, Mr. Lo Boonyodom, 21 years old, and Mr. Ood (alias), 18 years old, were detained with a 7 inch knife at the clinic.

The victim, Mr. Jirawet Matuweh, 25 years old, passed away in a small soi outside of the Foodland store from his injuries.

Investigators determined that the victim lost his job about 3 months ago. He met with the two suspects to purchase “green and yellows”, which refer to Tramadol. It’s believed that the victim was going to drink a kratom mixture along with the Tramadol.

Mr. Jirawet met the two suspects in the toilet to purchase the Tramadol and a fight broke out when a friend of Mr. Jirawet tried to rob the two suspects of their Tramadol without paying.

The suspects stabbed Mr. Jirawet and fled the scene, but one of the suspects had been stabbed in the altercation.

My take: Sad to say in this case but the way it’s been presented in the press, the victim and his friend tried to rob the drug dealers — and it didn’t end how they expected.
