Burmese woman stabbed to death at Bangkok shopping mall


A fruit seller from Myanmar has been stabbed to death outside the popular Platinum shopping mall in downtown Bangkok, next to the huge CentralWorld complex. According to a report, the murder, which took place yesterday at around midday, is believed to be linked to a work feud.

The victim has been named as 34 year old Phyu Mar Aung from Myanmar. Paramedics arrived on the scene to find her lying in a pool of blood. She had been stabbed at least five times in the torso, arm, and back. Rescuers attempted to resuscitate the woman but she died within half an hour of their arrival.

The suspected murderer has been named as fellow Burmese national Thet Lin Oo, who it’s understood worked at another fruit stall. Police say the suspect was angry the dead woman had complained to his boss that he spent all his time on his phone and was not a good worker.

It’s alleged the suspect used a 3-inch knife to stab the woman to death before attempting to flee the scene. However, he was detained by the mall’s security guards, who handed him over to the police.

The suspect is currently being held at Phaya Thai Police Station and is expected to be charged with murder.
