Thai Social Media channels are sharing a story yet to be confirmed by Pattaya Police.
Just after midnight, on the morning of Feb 2, Pattaya police were called to the Wilai Food Market, Soi 16, Pattaya Klang (opposite Kasikorn Bank) after after a naked man was reported to be prowling around attempting to stab people and damaging property.
The unnamed man, who was speaking Russian, is thought to be around 25-30-years old and was armed with a knife and a screwdriver.
Witness Mrs Thongyib Chomdee, (52) says she feared for her life as the crazy man looked directly at her. She quickly slammed her door and locked it. The witness then described how the man roamed around the market for about twenty-minutes attempting to stab people and damaging property.
Eventually police, with the help of local citizens and tourists, jumped the Russian, disarmed him and he was arrested.
The man was then taken to Pattaya Police Station.
Nobody is reported to have been seriously hurt.
