Police Launches Investigation into Foreigner Assault on BTS Case

BANGKOK: -- The Bangkok police is planning to question all parties involved in a video clip posted on Youtube showing a foreigner assaulted by BTS security guards.

Superintendent of the Thonglor Police Station, Police Colonel Rattasak Raksalam has reported that all parties involved in the video clip recently posted on Youtube showing a foreigner assaulted by BTS security guards at the Prompong Station will be summoned for questioning.

Rattasak said both sides have already filed a complaint with the police.

The investigation team will also try to track down the person who posted the clip to serve as a key witness.

Rattasak noted that the incident was likely caused by miscommunication.

President of the Bangkok Mass Transit System or BTS Arnat Arpapirom indicated that from an initial investigation, the foreigner was trying to board a train with his daughter's balloons which is against the BTS's security protocol.

BTS officials told the foreigner he had to abandon the balloons if he wants to go on the train but he refused, saying that he was let on the BTS with the balloons earlier in the day.

Arnat claimed the foreigner then started to get aggressive, kicking at trash cans, resulting in security guards being called in to subdue him.

The video clip showed the foreigner and BTS officials having a heated argument at the front of the ticket collection machine before he was clubbed in the head by the guards' baton.

The man is then seen going through the ticket collection machine, clutching some balloons in his hand and with blood dripping on his face.

The police will have to determine whether a crime has been committed as both sides have lodged a complaint.

The BTS will also launch a disciplinary inquiry on its employees.

In any case, the company is planning to compensate the victim, which will be unrelated to the police's investigation.

Why close a thread that was perfectly fine, only to open a new one on the same subject in a different part of the forum?

Makes no sense.

The guard filed a complaint after assaulting a passenger with a baton? Only after he found out he was about to be crucified via Youtube, I'll bet.

Its not very clear on the video what happen actually ... I will say ..those security guard act like if they were policeman (come on they are only "guard" LOL) and maybe the foreigner was disturb by the heat and the baloons of the kid. Miscommunication for sure as those guards hardly speak english. I dont think its necessary to publish this kind of stuff no ?

The only videos I have seen are after the fact. The father is already bleeding.

A good smack on the head does have the tendency to release a bit of adrenaline.
