BANGKOK — A woman stabbed a female employee with a pair of scissors at a national pharmacy chain Monday afternoon.

Wannakorn Krodkaew is accused of repeatedly stabbing Looknam Kaipetch, who worked in the cosmetics section of a Boots store at Central Plaza Grand Rama 9, an attack she later blamed on jealous rage.

Looknam, 19, was taken to Rajavithi Hospital.


In security footage of the incident, a woman can be seen milling about the store with another female patron. When Looknam enters, the first woman sets upon her, appearing to stab her five or six times before they get locked into a struggle over the weapon. Other staff and customers intervene.

Police said the woman with Wannakorn was not charged as she was unaware of her friend’s intentions.

Wannakorn, 27, told police she was suspicious her husband, who works in a nearby office building, was seeing Looknam. Wannakorn said she set an appointment to talk this through with Looknam at the store, but rage overcame her so she used the scissors to stab Looknam.

Wannakorn was charged with assault causing serious injury, according to Lt. Col. Kritpon Petchsodsilp of Huai Khwang Police Station.
