A security guard for the crown prince of Malaysia's Kedah state was attacked in his five-star hotel room in the Patong tourist area of Phuket, police have confirmed.
Kathu district police responded early on Wednesday to reports that a tourist was attacked by four men in a room of the Millennium Resort Patong Hotel. The man, later identified as a royal security guard, was rushed to hospital with two wounds on his head and bruises on his body.
He told police that the attackers waited inside his room and assaulted him when he entered, hitting him on the head with hard objects. They had prepared electric wire to tie him up, but he fought back and managed to run from the room to get help, at which point the attackers also fled, according to a report in Daily News.
