Police first received reports of the man, thought to be mentally ill, Monday morning in the Silom area, according to a report on the station’s Twitter page.
Witnesses said the man was wearing a motorcycle helmet, standing on a flyover above Sala Daeng intersection, when he took out a big rock from his jacket and tossed it down into Silom Road. The rock hit and damaged a side view mirror of a black Toyota sedan as the car waited for a green light in front of the Dusit Thani hotel.
The man then fled on a motorcycle.
A second attack, perhaps by the same man, was reported on Ratchadaphisek Road near the Rama 9 Intersection in the afternoon. The assailant was spotted by eyewitnesses standing on the elevated Chaturathit Road when he threw a large rock into a traffic lane of Ratchadaphisek Road below. The rock hit and fractured the windshield on the driver's side of a new Toyota pickup truck, which still had red licence plates.
Police in several districts of Bangkok are searching for the man, the report said.
