Two killed, 5 injured in Udon knife attacks
A slaughterhouse worker, believed to be high on drug, went on the rampage, killing two girls and wounding four other women and a 13-year-old boy in knife attacks in Udon Thani town on Saturday, according to media reports.

He was later identified as Itthiphol, 31, from Udon Thani's Nong Wua So district, who worked at a slaughterhouse in Muang district.

Police said the man went on a motorcycle around the town and started to attack people with a knife one after another.

The first victim was Anchaya, 16, whose neck was slashed by Mr Itthipol on Si Chom Chuen road behind the provincial central prison. The girl was rushed to Udon Thani Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The second was a 22-year-old woman, Cholada, from Muang district, who was attacked on Surakan road. She was stabbed in the neck and killed on the spot.

Mr Itthipol continued with the knife attacks, wounding four other women and a 13-year-old boy at different spots on the roads.

Police launched a manhunt on being reported of the attacks and spotted Mr Itthipol at the five-way intersection with a clock tower on Prajak road. He was chased by police and a large number of people. He was finally caught and brought to the police station.

Mr Itthipol appeared to be high on drug and gave a confusing statement during an enquiry.

He was initially charged with premeditated and attempted murders.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
