Police said that Siripong was drinking with work buddies under building A at Bell Condo. He threw a beer bottle into the trash but missed then went up to it and kicked it many times smashing it.

A group of ten security guards on duty went up to confront the teen and an argument ensued before they left.

But in the meantime Siripong contacted his gang who use the term “Innocent” as a Facebook Messenger group. He told them there had been trouble and a group of 13 of his mates in total met at Huay Kwang market then went on motorbikes back to the condo.

There they chased the five guards on duty into an office. Nampetch and Wuthichai then attacked head guard Achira Preechakitkosan and his 18 year old son Cheewanon who is also a guard. They used knives that have been taken into evidence.

Achira was hospitalized with wounds to his head, abdomen and ribs. he is still in Ratchathewi Hospital but is out of danger, reported Thai Rath.

His son needed 25 stitches to wounds sustained to his arm, back and foot but is now at home after treatment at Klong Tan Hospital.

The four named suspects have been charged in the warrant with assault, trespass and weapons charges. They are held in an adult prison.

The four others that were handed in by parents are being held in a juvenile facility.
