A man, high on drugs, went on a rampage injuring multiple people in Samut Prakan province yesterday. The man, only identified as Samhing, first assaulted his family members before stealing a pickup truck, damaging several vehicles and ending up under a motorway where he was restrained by the police.

 

The manhunt concluded with the suspect sustaining a gunshot wound and leaving two others - a police officer and a taxi driver - injured. On arrival at the scene, police found an abandoned Isuzu pickup with a shattered window and blood on the driver’s seat. Samhing was found restrained by numerous officers, appearing to be under the influence of drugs.

 

The injured officer, Thitipat Ruampalangek from Prapadaeng Police Station, had a stab wound in his chest, scrapes on both palms, and a gash in his knee. The taxi driver, Veera, had a knife slash on his arm. Officers revealed that upon their first encounter, Samhing had attacked them with a knife, leading them to shoot him.

 

Samhing was subsequently taken to Bangjak Hospital and his urine test confirmed methamphetamine use. Charges against him include attempted murder of law enforcement officials, armed robbery causing bodily harm, and drug use while operating a vehicle.

 

A co-worker of Samhing, who owned one of the damaged vehicles, claimed Samhing had shown signs of illness, including vomiting blood, before his violent outburst. Meanwhile, a taxi passenger escaped unscathed during a struggle that left driver, Veera, with injuries.
