The furious mother of Nok complained about the attack in the temple and the monk was brought in for questioning.

He told Buddhist officials that he attacked Nok after he & # 39; too rough & # 39; was when he played with his six-year-old son earlier in the day.

He said: & # 39; My son will be ordained a monk in the summer and he is hurt by the way he played with him. I was angry and could not control myself. & # 39;

Nok's mother agreed not to pursue the case against the monk when he left the area for another temple.

Phra Sathit is now 50 miles away from a religious building in Chonburi province in eastern Thailand.

The abbot, Phra Adisak, who punished the attacker, said: & # 39; The young novice monk admitted what happened based on what we saw in the CCTV clip.
