Police said Ali Khadem, 29, was bleeding profusely from a head injury when he ran up to a police booth on Soi Pattaya 13 in Tambon Nongplue in Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district at 5am.
Khadem told police through an interpreter that four or five young Thais had beaten him up. He said one of them had struck him on the head with a bottle while the others punched and kicked him.
The visitor was taken to Pattaya Memorial Hospital and rushed into intensive care.
Police detained two suspects, but they denied attacking the tourist.
CCTV camera recordings are being checked.
