BANGKOK — Four of the six men accused of attacking and killing a disabled man on Sunday morning outside a bakery at Chokchai Soi 4 are related to police officers.
Brothers Arin and Theerapol Yodponganan, 2o and 21 respectively, Monmanat Sangpho, 22, and 19-year-old Mek Polkraisorn were said at a press conference Monday afternoon to be sons of police officers. The four were among six arrested for stabbing and beating to death Somkiat Srichan, a 36-year-old bakery worker, around 8:30am Sunday.
The other two suspects are Akkaradet Thatsana, 22, and an 18-year-old whose identity is being withheld as he is a minor.
Somkiat who had difficulty walking due to a disability, was reportedly being teased by the six men and answered back, which urged them to attacked him, according to Pol.Col. Chairop Chunnawat of Chokchai Police Station.
Somkiat died after being sent to Paolo Memorial Hospital at Chokchai 4.
