BANGKOK, THAILAND — After asking a couple who were having sex in a parked car at a Bangkok market to move along, a security guard narrowly avoided being run over.
When the security chief approached the car in the early hours of Sunday morning, the driver attempted to run him over before fleeing the scene.
Fortunately, nobody was injured.
Warat Lunthong, a 20-year-old security guard, was the first to approach the couple. According to Warat, a short-haired man in his late twenties or thirties rolled down his window and asked, “What’s your problem?” “There was also a thin woman in the car who appeared to be around 20 years old,” Lunthong said.
Per report of Coconuts Bangkok, Lunthong rejected an undisclosed compensation from a woman who was not one of the two people he caught having sex early on that day outskirts in a Toyota Altis which then tried to hit him.
The unidentified woman met with the authorities and Warat yesterday, claiming she had loaned the vehicle to “a friend” who lent it to the couple who used it to have sex. She claimed not to know the couple or, even more sus, where her car was anymore.
She had offered to pay for the damages to Warat’s bike after it was bulldozed by the fleeing vehicle. The authorities refused to file any charges against her and are instead seeking the driver who hit Warat.
It all began when Warat’s patrol in the early hours of Sunday morning came upon the occupied vehicle outside the AC market in Bangkok’s Sai Mai district. Inside, two people in their twenties were taking Toyota’s “Let’s Go Places” slogan all the way to fourth base.
Wanat said the couple were both wearing masks (safety first!) but he would definitely remember their faces if he saw them again. Wanat asked them to move on since the market, located in the Sai Mai area of Bangkok, doesn’t allow cars to park there out of hours. However, the car was still there after 10 minutes.
Around 1 a.m. Sunday, Wanat notified head of security Thanakorn Milekhunthod for assistance. Thanakorn approached the car, and the driver attempted to run him over before fleeing the scene. The only thing that was damaged was a parked motorcycle.
Apparently, this is not the first time that couples have met in the market car park. Wanat has seen men and women straddling each other in the back seat numerous times in the eight months he has worked there and has asked them to move on. Wanat described an incident in which a car swayed back and forth.
The incident, which has gained widespread attention in Thai media, is being investigated as a criminal matter. The car’s owner stated that a friend of a friend of a friend had borrowed the vehicle, which is now missing. The driver’s identity is still unknown.
