Pol Lt Col Weerawut Meelai, an investigating officer at Muang Pattaya police station, said on Sunday that Dmitry Kozlov, 36, was attacked by eight men on Walking Street Road in South Pattaya on Saturday night. He suffered a broken nose and several bruises to his head and body.
Chamlongrat Noikong, 27, Mr Kozlov's wife, told police that she and her husband were taking a three-day vacation in Pattaya.
As the couple were standing outside a barbeque restaurant on Walking Street, two bikers approached and shouted at them to move out of the way. Mr Kozlov refused and asked them, "Why?"
The bikers appeared angry and one of them phoned some friends to come and join them.
Mrs Chamlongrat said she told the gang that she was sorry but they did not listen and assaulted her husband.
She said the gang included seven men and a woman. Four of the men appeared to be transsexuals, she added.
Pol Lt Col Weerawut said police will check footage from closed circuit television cameras and question people in the area to identify and arrest the attackers.
