Police in Samut Sakhon province on Wednesday are hunting an inmate who escaped from a hospital.

Krissana Kewchingduang, 30, snatched a Honda motorcycle from Sarinthorn Chuannok, 29, who was parking at a pharmacy where she worked.

The inmate was jailed for drug distribution at Thonburi Remand Prison in Bangkok’s Bangbon district.

Sarinthorn told police she had been parking the vehicle in front of the pharmacy when a tall man wearing a Samut Sakhon Hospital gown snatched the keys and pushed her away.

“I was shocked so I ran into the pharmacy and called for help. When I came back, the man had ridden away on the motorcycle that belonged to the owner of the shop,” she said.

Police said Krissana was sent to the hospital on Tuesday night after complaining of stomach pain and fever.

The doctors admitted him to the third floor of the hospital with a prison guard.
