PATTAYA:--A 25 year old female Russian Tourist was stabbed a total of 5 times as two men attempted to steal her handbag as she walked back to her Hotel on Jomtien Beach, early on Monday Morning.
Just after 3am, Police and medics were called to Soi Chayapreuk, in front of the Meung Mai Village and met with the victim of the street robbery, Miss Jenniya Nikolina. She had sustained wounds to her arms and was able to communicate with Police despite her limited English Language skills.
As she walked back to her Hotel, two men on a motorbike pulled up beside her. One of them was armed with a long knife. He approached the victim and attempted to cut through the shoulder strap of her bag. The man was able to grab the bag, containing 3,000 Baht in cash, a mobile phone and a digital camera. The man then attempted to snatch her gold necklace from around her neck but she decided to fight back, and in the process was injured by the assailants knife.
Miss Nikolina was rushed to Hospital while Police gathered evidence, including a pair of shoes left by one of the men at the scene as the pair made their escape.
