The 51-year-old man’s son, 27, was also assaulted when a fight began at Ao Nang’s Longhorn Saloon Bar.

“We accept that we attacked them, but we didn’t intend to kill anyone. The father and son came to the pub and they joined us singing on the stage,” one of the musicians told police, according to the Phuket Gazette.

“Then we had an argument with them because they refused to stop singing when the time was up. The father knocked our tip-box to the floor.

“After a while they came outside and started another argument with us. The father knocked me to the ground first, and I could not breathe because he was sitting on my chest.

“Then I spotted a sharp piece of metal nearby, so I grabbed it and stabbed him.” Krabi police officer Sanya Kaewnui said:

“We rushed to the scene and found blood splattered in front of the bar. We were told that two injured men had been taken to Krabi Hospital before we arrived.”
