A Russian tourist has sustained minor injuries after a Thai couple got into a physical argument on the Bangla Road in Patong.

The Phuket Tourist Police told the Phuket Express that they were notified that a Thai couple were verbally arguing at an entertainment venue on the Bangla Road on Tuesday night (November 28th).

The couple “accidentally” threw a glass of whisky at a Russian tourist at an entertainment venue during their argument. The Russian tourist then sustained minor head injuries.
