A video clip of two people fighting on Bangla Road in Patong has gone viral on social media. However, Patong Police said no one officially filed a police report on this incident.
The video clip was shared on Facebook with a message reading, “Two women were fighting on the busy Bangla Road this week with Thai and foreign tourists watching. An unidentified man stepped in to stop the fighting.”
The Phuket Express asked the Patong Police Chief Colonel Sujin Nilbodee about the incident and he said, “No one filed a report to police. So we don’t know who they are or why they were fighting. However, we are investigating the incident as it was widely shared on social media and damages the solid reputation of Bangla Road as a leading tourism destination.”
“Patong Police are now patrolling on the Bangla Road every night for safety and to prevent any fighting.” The chief added.
