A man with a gun attempted to gain access to a vehicle stopped at red light in Nong Chom, San Sai early yesterday morning, Sept. 2.
The attempted carjacking took place at the Nong Chom Intersection where the Outer Ring Road (Highway 121) intersects Chiang Mai – Phrao Road (Highway 1001) at around 12:13 a.m.
A video clip posted to Facebook by Noppadon Jitngam, the brother of the person driving the vehicle at the time shows a man around 20 to 30 years of age wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and shorts walk to the vehicle. Off-camera, the man then attempts to open the door of the car which fortunately had been locked.
The car subsequently speeds off with the wannabe carjacker being left behind.
Jitngam told Chiang Mai News that he posted to the video as a warning to relatives and acquaintances. He added that he would like authorities to investigate the incident as well.
