Police in Phuket are hunting two foreign women, one of whom allegedly placed a Thai woman in a chokehold in a dispute over a car incident. Some Thai language media outlets have reported that the women are Russian.

According to a Phuket News report, the incident took place in the northern sub-district of Chergntalay, at around 9.20pm on Saturday, June 22. Chergntalay Police Station was notified of a collision between two vehicles at the intersection between Soi Chergntalay 4 and Soi Chergntalay 6.

Officers arrived on the scene and spoke to a Thai woman named as 27 year old Wannawisa Bualuang. According to Ms Wannawisa, she was driving her white Toyota Yaris car and entered Soi Chergntalay 4 from the direction of Chergntalay Municipality. A white MG3 coming from the direction of the Homa Hotel then crashed into her.

Ms Wannawisa told officers that the other car was being driven by a foreign woman, with one passenger, also a foreign woman.  She says both women got out of the car and began discussing the accident before deciding to leave without agreeing any settlement or liability.

Ms Wannawisa says she then grabbed the foreign driver’s car key to prevent her from leaving the scene. The woman tried to take the key back and when she was unable to do so, grabbed the Thai woman by the back of the head and pushed her face into the bonnet of the car.

She then proceeded to wrap her arm around Ms Wannawisa’s neck, holding her in a chokehold, while attempting to retrieve the car key. It’s understood the assault was filmed by a passenger in Ms Wannawisa’s car.

When the Thai woman refused to return the car key, the foreign women gave up and left the scene on foot. Police have launched a search for the women, with the intention of pressing charges.
