HORRER MOMENT TRAINEE PILOT IS STABBED IN THE NECK
This is the horrific moment a trainee pilot is stabbed to death through the NECK by muggers who stole his iPhone.
Wasin Leuangjaem, 26, had walked to a corner shop to buy cigarettes at around 10pm on Wednesday night in Bangkok, Thailand.
CCTV shows him get into an argument with a man - dubbed the iPhone killer by Thai media - who is wearing a black motorcycle helmet.
The pair grapple as the attacker pulls out a large knife - which he plunges through Wasin's neck and into his back.
The young man is killed instantly and collapses onto the floor - as the attacker and an accomplice flee together on a motorbike.
Police said the victim's iPhone was missing after the attack and have launched a desperate appeal to find the killer and the man riding the motorcycle.
Yuttapon Srisompong, from the Thai Royal Police said: ''The CCTV clip shows the young man being stabbed. This is a very nasty killing.
''Please share as much as you can so that police can find the killer.
''The family are very upset. The police have to find him, they cannot be afraid of the criminals anymore.''
Officers in the Lat Phrao district of the city found Wasin dead in a pool of blood.
He had a stab wound on the front of his neck that had pierced his windpipe and a second stab wound on his back.
Police said the university graduate was a former employee of Bangkok Flight Services and had left to train to become a pilot.
A spokesman added: ''There had been a loud argument before. We are studying all the CCTV in the area to find the suspects.
''The victim's iPhone was missing and his car keys were. It may have been robbery or a personal argument.''
