A British woman has filed a police complaint against a Phuket tailor she alleges slapped her.

It’s understood the woman, who is a teacher at an international school on the island, has refused a police suggestion that both parties meet to resolve the matter, saying she intends to pursue her complaint to the full extent of the law.

Khaosod English reports that the woman, named only as Mrs Bedi, accuses the tailor of slapping her in front of her children. It’s understood the incident happened on Monday, July 1, when the teacher visited Smart Tailor By Daniel, in the sub-district of Chergntalay (near Bang Tao), to order a dress.

While speaking with the owner, she told the media they got into a “disagreement over the price”, during which he slapped her across the face, causing her to fall down in front of her children.

Mrs Bedi subsequently visited Chergntalay Police Station in the company of an interpreter and filed a formal complaint against the tailor, named as Daeng Phanupong.

When the police offered to facilitate a meeting to allow both parties to resolve the matter, she reportedly refused, insisting she does not want to settle but will proceed with legal action against the tailor.

It’s understood the authorities have contacted Mr Daeng, who informed them he is travelling elsewhere in Thailand and will meet them tomorrow, July 4, when he is back on the island.
