Muang district police were notified of the incident at 8pm and promptly went to the scene, where they found three severely injured persons.

The three – Wasan Jaritram, 21, an unidentified friend of his aged 21 and Wannasit Sudprasert, 46 – were rushed to Fort Suranari Hospital.

Wasan’s girlfriend said she and her boyfriend had an argument with Wannasit, the restaurant owner, who "usually picked on him and his friends".

Security camera footage showed that Wannasit grabbed a knife to attack them. Wasan then found a knife nearby and grabbed it to fight his opponent.

Meanwhile, Wannasit’s brother and Wasan’s friend also began fighting each other before residents intervened to stop the fight.

Wannasit and Wasan’s friend were stabbed all over their bodies while Wasan himself was stabbed in the neck. Wannasit later died at the hospital.

The police have initially arrested Wannasit’s brother, who had a knife, and have detained him at Muang Nakhon Ratchasima police station.
