Nikhom reportedly admitted to police he was not pleased with staffers at the conveniece store. He came back again for his revenge because the a staff member fought him during his first robbery attempt.

Nikhom was seemingly unapologetic for his crimes and seemed to feel that robbing the venue a second time was the “right” thing to do because they disrupted his first attempt at a robbery. Wichit Police did not agree with Nikhom’s perception of the situation and as a result Nikhom remains in custody pending court appearances for his theft charges.
