In the early hours of yesterday morning, 17th June 2020, police were called to a chaotic street brawl in the Ban Tho area of Huay Kaew, Chiang Mai.
The fight broke out between a group of 20 young men aged between 17-18 years old after 2-3 youths approached another group and one boy enquired about his missing girlfriend.
The larger group said they did not know the young lady but the girl’s boyfriend was not happy with their response. Local residents witnessed the commotion and called Chang Phueak Police Station.
Officers arrived at the street quickly and managed to subdue the young men who were said to be intoxicated. No arrests were made but all the parents were notified, their details were recorded and they received a warning from officers at the scene. Luckily, nobody sustained any serious injuries.
This comes less than 48 hours after the government lifted the curfew across Thailand.
