SAMUI:-- Two motorcyclists who dragged a woman behind their motorbike while attempting to steal her bag at Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui last week were arrested early yesterday morning.

The CCTV footage of the incident, which featured Kanitta Krawwer, 32, being dragged by her bag’s shoulder strap as the two men attempted to steal it from around her neck, went viral on social media and amassed thousands of comments and shares.

 

“Suspects Sarayu Kongkaew, 31, and Thana Roongroj, 28, were both apprehended and their motorbike confiscated at about 3am,” Col Taywes Pleumsoot of Bo Phut Police told Phuket Gazette reporters.
