In the past seven weeks, a 20-year-old Sri Saket man has destroyed eight cars parked at the governmental office where his mom works in a cry for attention and cash.
Lokanya Onwan, an accountant at the Sri Saket Educational Office, became the latest victim of the man identified only as “Jay” after he allegedly smashed the rear windshield of her Toyota Altis yesterday with a brick.
Staff member Boonchuai Rodniam told the police Jay, whose mom works at the office, threatened to smash 10 cars until his mom gives him THB800,000 cash to buy a big bike.
He has already allegedly smashed up seven cars and set fire to an eighth.
The identities of the mother and son were not disclosed in reports.
Boonchuai added that he also witnessed Jay smashing a car on Feb. 19, but he and other staff members were too afraid to intervene as he pulled out a spartan knife and threatened to attack them.
Police said they will call the victim and Jay’s mother in for questioning.
According to reports by Manager, Jay has not been arrested because he is related to a senior police officer in the province and his mom has so far dealt with her son’s rampages by paying compensation to the victims.
Only two more cars to go.
