Surat Thai police chief Apichart Boonsriroj said today (Aug 28) that no legal action could be taken against the attacker without an official complaint from the victim. He believed she was still on the island.

Police identified the bottle-wielder as Jakkrit Jantason, a 29-year-old assistant at a pharmacy on Rin Beach. The man hit Franco Correia on the back of her head with a glass bottle during a brief scuffle after the party on Sunday night.

Mr Jakkrit told police that he found the tourist lying in front of the shop about 2:45am yesterday morning (Aug 27) and asked her repeatedly to leave. He showed her a sign in English asking people not to block the shop entrance, but to no avail.

The woman appeared drunk and scolded him and they then exchanged strong words. The woman then scratched his face. That made him angry so he hit her with a bottle from inside the shop, Mr Jakkrit said.

Earlier, police told both parties to get treatment for their injuries before filing their complaints. Mr Jakkrit waited for the woman yesterday morning, but she did not show up.
