A mother of a two year old child claims her son was knocked unconscious after a volunteer police hit him with a baton last night in Pattaya.
The Siam Ruamjai (Pu-in) Foundation reports that just after midnight this morning a two year old boy Silan ‘Nong Sam’ Ninkham was being treated at the Bang Lamung Hospital in Chon Buri after allegedly being hit on his head with a ‘stick’.
His mother, 25 year old Kanya Tomklang, says she, her husband and her son were going out to eat. When they saw a police checkpoint, they veered away to try and avoid a fine.
But she says a man dressed in black used a truncheon to hit her son.
He tried another strike but her husband kicked him to prevent further injury.
Police are continuing their investigation over the incident.
