According to reports the two “angry aunties” who gained media headlines after they were filmed smashing up a woman’s pick-up with an axe and a spade have failed to show up to a police summons in connection to the incident.
The two sister’s 61-year-old Ratanachat and 57-year-old Ranee Sangyoktrakarn also stand accused of threatening the owner of the pick-up and carrying weapons in public without a permit.
The aunties were summoned to appear at the police station yesterday after the pick-up’s owner Rachanikorn Lertwassana filed a complaint with the police over the damage to her vehicle which she had parked blocking the women’s driveway which apparently caused the incident.
Speaking about their absence Pol Colonel Alongkorn Sirisongkram said that the women’s lawyer had contacted the station and said that the women had face an “inconvenience” and would not be able to attend the summons.
Their lawyer Anatachai Chaiyadej did not give officers any information as to when the women would acknowledge the charges that they are currently facing but did say he anticipated officers would issue a second summons at some point this week.
If the pair fail to show up for a second summons officers are within their rights to issue an arrest warrant.
The video of the women’s actions quickly went viral on social media after it was uploaded last week and the pair have since spoken to reporters calling out the Bangkok Metropolitan Authorities for allowing markets to be set up in a residential area which has resulted in access to their house being constantly obstructed by people attending the markets.
Following the two aunties comments the governor of Bangkok Aswin Kwanmuang personally visited the area and ordered three of the five markets that operate in the area to be closed down as they did not have permits to operate.
