Japanese Tourists Attacked By Knife-Wielding 'Ladyboy'

(24 October) Pattaya police are searching for a Thai ladyboy who allegedly attacked two Japanese tourists with her knife.

Mr. Kazunari Ito, 37, and Mr. Hinnoshi Imuta, 28, alerted Pattaya police and claimed that they had been attacked by a lady boy (a transgender) in Walking Street, South Pattaya, after they refused her offer for massage service.

The victims said that the suspect asked to join their table before they bought her drinks. Soon they excused her and said they would leave for a massage.

The lady boy then allegedly offered the tourists to go for a massage with her, but the offer was refused as the tourists insisted they would go to a different massage parlour.

Mr. Ito and Mr. Imuta said the lady boy became enraged and started shouting at them. She also attacked them with a knife before escaping the scene amid the chaos, the tourists said.

Mr. Ito suffered a 1-ft long cut on his chest, and a cut on his left arm.

Initial investigation was conducted before Mr. Ito was sent to Banglamung hospital.

Police said they had already obtained a photograph of the suspect and would attempt to arrest her as soon as possible.
