A security guard in the Thai city of Pattaya is being held at a local police station after “going mad” in a temple. The cause? He claimed that he was being continually stalked by the ghost a woman in a white dress.
When police arrived on the scene, they found a group of monks restraining the terrified Phonsiri Janthamas, a 45 year old security guard. Phonsiri was bleeding heavily from his left arm, an injury he sustained from punching a large mirror until it shattered.
When authorities couldn’t calm the shivering man, who they insist had gone completely insane, they cuffed him and took him down the station. The temple monks, on the other hand, recounted how Phonsiri suddenly freaked out and trashed the place, attacking a giant sliding mirror, and scaring the Abbot so much he locked himself in a temple room and waited for the police, letting all the monk trainees grapple with the crazed security guard.
The pieces finally began to come together when officers questioned Phonsiri’s 26 year-old co-worker, who told them he brought Phonsiri to the temple to seek the advice of the monks after being constantly followed by the ghost of a woman in a white dress. According to a report in the Pattaya Daily News, upon seeing the mirror, the haunted man’s mind “finally snapped”, sending him into a frenzy.
