Drunk 'Polytechnic Student' Robs 7-11 Store

(25 October) A 7-11 convenience store in Phasee Charoen district of Bangkok has been robbed by an intoxicated masked individual believed to be a polytechnic school student.

The cashier on duty at the time said that at around 02.00, a man walked in and threatened her with 50 cm long knife, forcing her to give up the store′s cash worth approximately 5,000 baht.

It is reported that the man was wearing a white shirt and navy blue trousers similar to those worn by polytechnic students. He also covered his face with a black T-shirt during the robbery. The suspect is said to be 1.65-1.70 cm tall.

A CCTV video record shows that the suspect took only 20 minutes to rob the store, after he entered it from Soi Petchakasem 20. However, the video failed to indicate how the suspect fled the scene.
