BANGKOK – Four armed Thai bouncers attack two British men with metal bars on Khao San Road — a well-known hotspot for backpackers in the centre of Bangkok.

Brave locals jumped in to try and stop the bouncers during the brutal attack as the bouncer kicked and punched Briton’s Amando Rodriguez and Niall Loftus.

Tourist Police deputy chief Col. Nithithorn Chintakanon said, the two victims and their friends attempted to enter Brick Bar on Khaosan Road at around 3am Monday, but they were intoxicated and carrying beer bottles at the time, so the bouncers denied them entry.

The two injured Britons were named as Amando Rodriguez and Niall Loftus and friends

Upon being refused entry, the four Britons went into a nearby restroom, where they allegedly splashed their beer on other customers, at which point the bouncers intervened, dragged two of the tourists into the street and assaulted them, Khaosad News Reported

When police arrived at the scene they arrested two bouncers working for the bar, identified as Jiranuwat Saiyadee, 23, and Preecha Pansomboon, 30. The two injured Britons were named as Amando Rodriguez and Niall Loftus.

Col. Nithitorn said the two suspects were subsequently charged and convicted of assault, given a one-year suspended jail sentence, and fined 2,000 baht each. They were later expelled by the company that owns Brick Bar, according to Nithithorn.

The four tourists were also paid 10,000 baht each in compensation by the bar, Col. Nithithorn Chintakanon said.
