CHONBURI — A "ladyboy" waitress in the red light district of Pattaya allegedly used her high-heel shoe to assault an American tourist who refused to sit at her bar, police say.
The incident reportedly took place at around 1 am this morning in front of a bar in Soi Bua Kao. According to the 36-year-old tourist, he was walking past the bar when a ladyboy (transgender woman) waitress approached him and invited him to sit at the bar.
The American says the waitress became angry when he refused to stop at the bar and used her high-heel shoe to hit him in the face. The tourist was then taken to Pattaya Memorial Hospital where he received 15 stitches. Medical workers say his condition is now stable.
Police at Muang Pattaya Police Station say they are trying locate the suspect, who reportedly fled the scene shortly after the incident.
