(29 January) A "jealous" ex-girlfriend has spray-painted her former boyfriend's car to express her anger, said the victim's brother who reportedly witnessed the scene.
The incident took place near Ranong Bus Terminal in Mueang Ranong district, Ranong province.
At the scene, police found a silver colour pick-up truck spray-painted in red with vulgar curse words. Many parts of the vehicle were also damaged, reports said.
In front of the car, police found a funeral wreath of flower dedicated to Mr. Krittaphas Rossukhon, the owner of the car.
According to a witness, who is a brother of the victim, he saw a "tall, skinny" woman in white T-shirt and short trousers arriving at the vehicle on the night of 27 January and vandalising the car, along with leaving the funeral wreath.
The witness said he suspected the woman to be his brother’s former girlfriend, who has moved to Bangkok several years ago. He speculated that she might have returned to Ranong province and committed the crime out of "jealousy".
The police said they are investigating CCTV footage to identify and arrest the suspect on the charge of damaging other people′s belongings at night.
