A taxi driver will appear in court after he attacked a Khao Takiab hotel receptionist at a rank on Saturday.


Sasiwimon Srikham suffered five stitches in head and mouth wounds after she was attacked while walking by the rank in Khao Takiab.


The police have let the taxi driver go after he admitted everything.


But Manager reported that he was the same man caught in a video clip threatening a Grab taxi driver for coming to Hua Hin to pick up passengers.


In addition the victim of the attack at the rank has now asked police to press defamation charges after she alleged that two women went on a TV show and lied about her.


Yesterday the victim and her attacker - 38 year old Jakkrit "Kong" Pheungjoh - met without reporters present at Hua Hin police station.


"Kong" has admitted everything and was let go but he will face a court date for intentional assault.


Manager said that the taxi driver had promised to police that he would commit no more harassment of the victim on Facebook. They also said he had promised to protect her in the future.


Sasiwimon said she was feeling better now both physically and mentally after hearing the driver's apology.


But she confirmed that she had spoken to police about the defamation charges against the two unnamed women who had gone on TV and caused damage to her reputation.
