CHON BURI - A barber has been killed after a heated argument with a customer over a haircut.
A 17-year-old, whose name was withheld as he is a youth, was arrested by police on Wednesday after he allegedly killed Manoon Wiengcheng, the owner of a barber shop in Muang district in Chon Buri.
Pol Col Prasert Tosaksit, superintendent of Hua Lor police station, said on Thursday the youth had admitted murdering Manoon by hitting him with a stick followed by a stone in front of the shop on Wednesday.
The youth said he went to the shop on Tuesday and asked Manoon to cut his hair in his favourite style. But he said he was not satisfied with the way it turned out after the barber had finished, and he had "words" with the man.
Manoon was angry and kicked him out of the shop.
The youth returned to the shop in the early hours of Wednesday and called the barber out to "clear the problem", according to Pol Col Prasert. When Manoon came out, he began hitting him before leaving.
Manoon was sent to Chon Buri Hospital but succumbed to his injuries, the Daily News online reported. The suspect fall asleep after Manoon started trimming his hair, it added.
Police took the suspect to the shop for a crime re-enactment on Thursday. He faces murder charges.
