Bangkok >> A resident of a high-rise condominium in Thailand cut the support ropes of two painters. Wednesday.

The woman is guilty of attempted murder and vandalism, Pol. Colonel Ponjak Prechakarung Pong, head of the Pak Klet police station north of the Thai capital, told The Associated Press.

Ponjak did not say why he cut the rope, but Thai media announced a condominium where workers would appear outside the room and work on October 12. He reported that he was clearly frustrated because he hadn’t seen it.

A video clip on social media showed two painters asking residents on the 26th floor to open windows and get inside. One of the painters, a Myanmar citizen named Son, told Thai media that he and his two friends were on the 32nd floor to repair cracks in the building.

When I got to the 30th floor, I felt the rope was heavy, and when I looked down, I saw someone on the 21st floor opening the window and cutting the rope. He tried to ask other troops for help, but no one was there. A third colleague continued to support them from the top floor, said Prapaiwan Setting, the resident who saved them.

Mr. Prapaiwan noticed that an English husband was asking for help from a painter and told her to call her and talk to them.

“This incident is shocking and shouldn’t happen at all,” she said.

The condominium manager accompanied the painter to report the incident to the police. The 34-year-old woman initially denied her responsibility, but police sent a cut rope for fingerprint and DNA analysis, media reported.

On Wednesday, the woman and her lawyer appeared at the police station. She confessed after police showed her CCTV footage and forensic evidence, but denied her intention to kill the workers.

Pongjak said the suspect had been temporarily released. He said police would prosecute the district court within 15 days. If convicted of attempted murder, she can face up to 20 years in prison.
