The crime initially went unreported but police have now announced they are aware of the identity of the suspect and an arrest warrant has been issued for him.
The wanted man is Mr Tewalit, 23, who was seen on CCTV talking with the foreign tourist. It seemed the tourist was apologising for something when a fight broke out between the pair. The Thai suspect was much smaller than his foreign opponent and retreated for a time, before returning with a knife.
A short chase down Walking Street occurred and when the suspect caught up with the victim he stabbed him in his stomach before fleeing the scene.
The victim is now recovering from his injuries in a hospital in Bangkok as police search for the suspect so he can be brought to justice.
