On the night of the 3rd July, police were alerted to an incident at Nakorn Ping Hospital.
On arrival they found Susao Saeyang, a 23 year old Hmong man, intoxicated and attempting to hit his six year old son. Hospital staff and security were also hurt as he refused to calm down.
Susao works as a handyman at a local hotel and lived on the hotel grounds, according to reports. His son, Songkran, is six years old and was in hospital after his father, Susao had hit him on the head.
It was only when Susao arrived at the hospital intent on continuing to beat up his son that he was arrested.
