On June 2, the owner of the “E.Kimmm” Facebook page drew attention from Thai Netizens when she posted a message saying her father had been attacked by her neighbours because he mistaken walked into their house.
Reporters then visited the neighbourhood and interviewed the city council official, who insisted it was the old man who started the attack.
He said the Alzheimer’s patient had walked into his house with a knife and tried to attack his father who had been sleeping. He said he then tried to grab the knife from the attacker and ended up getting injured himself, adding that he too needed 14 stitches.
E.Kimmm later posted that her father and the neighbour had a long-standing conflict, but said she did not believe her father would have attacked them because he has walked into wrong houses several times before due to his illness.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disorder that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behaviour.
