An American man has sustained injuries after he was allegedly attacked on Bangla Road in Patong.
Emergency responders were notified at 3:30 A.M. this morning (September 28th) that a tourist was allegedly attacked on Bangla Road in Patong.
They arrived at the scene to find the injured 35 year-old American man. He had sustained injuries to his face and his middle finger of his left hand. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment but was reportedly released not long after. His name was withheld by emergency teams.
He was with a 24-year-old Russian woman who was not injured. They reportedly were tourists who stayed at a hotel on Phra Baramee Road in Patong, Kathu. The American man told first responders that only he was attacked.
