A Thai lady boy has been charged with attempted murder after he stabbed a Norwegian tourist in Ao Nang, Krabi.
The Norwegian – stabbed in the rib cage – is recovering in Krabi Hospital while Samart, 31, says he used a knife in self defense.
Norrod (name transliterated from Thai) was with a group of friends when “Lisa” (the name Samart uses) rode by on a green Honda Scoopy i.
Samart said that the victim shouted “Lady Boy Crazy” and showed a middle finger. He went over and said that trouble broke out with the bike being knocked over. He claimed the Norwegian advanced on him so he got out a knife and defended himself by stabbing the tourist below the chest nipple.
The assailant then fled. The incident happened around 4am.
Police rushed the victim to hospital where surgery saved his life after a blood clot formed on the lung. He is recovering but still in hospital.
Police staked out Samart’s room in Soi Khao Kaew after finding it locked. He returned there Friday afternoon and was arrested, reported Sanook.
He was taken on a reenactment yesterday claiming self defense.
