Frenzied, naked farang wields knife at locals in Pattaya

Central Pattaya residents were terrified and perplexed by a crazed, naked farang who ran amok with a knife last night at midnight.

Pattaya police received a report that a mad man went on a rampage without any clothes on at Mae Wilai Market in Central Pattaya. They found a completely naked farang, estimated to be 25 – 30 years old, wandering around and threatening to attack anyone who approached him.

Police spent 20 minutes taking him down. He was taken to Muang Pattaya police station to calm down. However, there is no information about his identity, nationality or reason for his strange behavior, Sanook reported.

A street vendor, Thongyip Chomdee, who witnessed the butt naked madness, said that the man carried a knife and a screwdriver and went about damaging stuff and threatening people. Fearing for her life, she closed and locked the door, but the man tried to break in and attack her. Luckily, the police got there before he succeeded.

Thai Visa published a video of the moment police and annoyed locals seized him.

Hey, be careful where you put those hands buddy.
