PATTAYA, Chon Buri - A 76-year-old Swiss man was attacked and injured by the tomboy friend of his former Thai girlfriend after he rejected her latest request for money in Pattaya on Monday night.

Local police were informed of the assault about 10.30pm at a house on Batman alley off South Pattaya 2 Road in Bang Lamung district, Chon Buri.

They found retiree Walter Bruderer bleeding from a deep cut on his head. Rescue workers gave him first aid but he refused to go to a hospital right away.

Witnesses said that a young woman, his ex-girlfriend, visited him expecting to be given money as usual.   However, the elderly Swiss man refused her latest demand.

The woman became frustrated and angry and phoned a tomboy friend to come to the house. The new visitor hit the man on the head with a tile and then they both made off with his motorcycle.

Police were hunting for the suspects, both in their 20s.
