A Saudi tourist was left shirtless and covered in blood yesterday after a drunken knife fight which started when his friend flirted with his girlfriend.
Alhazemt Salamah Obaidallahk, 41, had been drinking with pal Aljameeli Khslf Khalafk, 37, and three women at in the early hours of Thursday morning.
But Aljameeli made a move on his friend’s partner who rebuffed him – sparking a furious bare-knuckle fight inside the apartment in Pattaya, Thailand.
The crazed younger Saudi then stormed into the kitchen and allegedly grabbed a knife – repeatedly slashing at Alhazemt.
Alhazemt was pictured sitting in the street shirtless and shoeless with his white boxer shorts covered in blood.
Alhazemt’s Thai girlfriend said: ‘’His friend touched me and was trying to get me. I sad no and they were both drunk and started fighting. I told them all lets go to bed now but the man wouldn’t leave.
‘’He was so angry and picked up a knife from the kitchen. He stabbed my boyfriend some times then ran back into the room and locked the door.’’
Officers said that Alhazemt was bandaged up at the scene before being taken to hospital to be checked over.
His jilted friend was arrested and held in police custody while they investigate the incident in the heady tourist hotspot.
The knife fight is the latest in a series of shocking crimes involving tourists in the city dubbed a ”modern day Sodom and Gomorrah’’.
Earlier this week a British couple were attacked in a dispute over a bar bill and another tourist was pictured covered in blood after an argument with a transsexual prostitute.
A number of tourist have also been caught in bed with hookers in a number of high-profile raids on brothels as authorities crack down on the illegal sex trade.
