Prosecutors in Germany on Wednesday said two teenagers shot the Thailand king with toy guns as the monarch was riding a bicycle earlier this month.

Fortunately, the king was not hurt in the incident.

According to the South China Morning Post (via the Associated Press), Thomas Rauscher, a spokesman for prosecutors in Landshut, Germany, said King Maha Vajiralongkorn was riding a bicycle in Erding, near Munich, on the evening of June 10.

The Thai monarch spent many years residing in Germany.

The two teenagers – aged 14 and 13 – had reportedly taken aim at the monarch from a garden and also shot at his car with airsoft guns as it moved past them.

The king was cycling in the dark with a group of other cyclists when the teenagers shot at them. Local media said the monarch was hit on the back.

A spokesman for the police bureau Oberbayern Nord was quoted as saying the king’s bodyguards had called local police.

“We found the bullets and can confirm they were from a toy air gun,” he told Germany’s Bild Zeitung.

The 14-year old is facing charges of attempted dangerous bodily harm while the 13-year-old is too young to be charged.

The king has also reportedly declined to press charges.
