British family brutally attacked in Hua Hin (VIDEO)

Police have released CCTV footage of a brutal attack on a British family by a group of Thais over Songkran in a bid to catch one of the suspects.

The family of three — a mum, dad and their son — were leaving a bar in Hua Hin where they were reportedly celebrating Songkran on April 13 when they were attacked.

The video shows that after a brief argument all three were punched to the ground and repeatedly kicked.

At one point, the woman —  believed to be in her 60s or 70s —  tries to sit back up but as she raises her head off the ground she’s kicked straight in the jaw and instantly knocked unconscious.

Police identified four men as the assailants, said Chaiyakorn Seeladecho, commander of Hua Hin City Police Station. The men are  Yingyai Kwangkum-in, 32; Supatra Baithong, 32; Siva Yoksri, 20; and Chaiya Jaiboon, 20.

Yingyai, Supatra and Siva were arrested April 16, while police are still looking for Chaiya, Col. Chaiyakorn said Thursday, reported Khaosod English.

“The perpetrators said they were drunk. They have also apologized to the family,” the police colonel said.
