Police have launched a manhunt for two robbers who killed a university student before snatching his iPhone.
The robbery took place in Soi Sukhonthasawat 27 at about 11 pm on Wednesday night. The victim is reported to be a student of Srinakharinwirot University.
Video footage at the crime scene which was examined by the police shows the two suspected robbers in the act of robbing their victim whose name was withheld by the police.
Pol Lt-Gen Sanit Mahathavorn, the metropolitan police commissioner, on Thursday chaired a meeting with police officers in charge of investigating the robbery case. He said the case was purely robbery as the victim did not have any known enemies.
He suspected the robbers stabbed the victim to death because the latter refused to hand over his iPhone to them. He said he was confident that the culprits would soon be arrested.
