An Irish holidaymaker was reportedly beaten up by a ladyboy in Thailand after refusing her sexual advances.
Michael Merry was approached by the woman at 3am when walking down a street in Pattaya, a city in Thailand known for its trouble and high crime rate.
Wichai Sripalang apparently beat Merry with her heel, moments after he refused her sexual advances. Reports say he pushed her to the floor after claiming he was molested.
The transgender woman then struck Michale with her heel, before local police broke up the fight. Medics then deal with Merry’s injuries.
Police spokesperson, Piyapong Ensan, spoke about the incident:
The transgender woman who approached him and offered sexual services, he declined the offer but she then put her arms around him and molested him.
This annoyed him and he shoved her away, causing her to fall to the ground. When she stood up she took of one of her shoes, and used it to hit the victim over the head.
Sripalang now faces a fine for the attack.
