Man arrested for attempted rape of foreign tourist in Chiang Mai
A man who robbed and allegedly attempted to rape a Chinese tourist was apprehended at his house while he was having his head shaved before entering the monkhood.
Mae Rim cops in Chiang Mai announce the arrest of 26 year old Wuthisak yesterday and took him on a reenactment to the entrance to the Huay Tung Tao reservoir where he had attacked and robbed a Chinese tourist on Friday night.
The 23 year old tourist had been walking around Muang district of the northern Thai city when she noticed Wuthisak who was wearing a t-shirt with the name of the hotel that she was staying at.
She asked for a lift with Wuthisak. But instead of taking her to the hotel he took her to the scene of the crime where he allegedly tried to rape her. She screamed for help making him stop and then he decided just to steal her bag that contained a little over 1,000 baht, an iPhone 8, passport and credit card.
Mae Rim police worked with Muang district cops and the tourist police in following the trail of the suspect who was arrested at his house in Saraphi district.
He was having his head shaved at the time as he was about to ordain after the death of a relative, a Thai tradition.
Wuthisak told investigators that he thought the Chinese woman fancied him. When she started screaming he decided to just rob her instead, reported Sanook on Wednesday.
He has so far just been charged with robbery, a crime he has admitted.
