Police say the 46-year-old German man was an owner of 99 Beer Bar on Chaweng Beach, one of the island’s well-known entertainment districts. 

According to witnesses, the deceased and his Thai girlfriend were in the parking lot of a nightclub on Chaweng Beach when they encountered three teenagers sitting and drinking alcohol on the German’s motorcycle.

The German man reportedly became angry and began arguing with the teenagers. The three Thais lost their temper, punched the German in his face, beat him with beer bottles, and stabbed his neck with shards of glass, witnesses said.

The suspects fled the scene after the attack, witnesses told police. Medical workers say the victim died from stabbing wounds. Khaosod English is withholding the name of the deceased until it is confirmed that his relatives have been informed.

Police in Koh Samui say they are investigating CCTV footage from the area of the crime scene to identify and arrest the three suspects.
