A 38-year-old Belgian tourist was robbed of his bag containing 10,000 Thai Baht in cash while he and his Thai girlfriend were enjoying dinner at the Lee’s Diner restaurant on Soi Diana Wednesday night. The victim assumes that a fake watch vendor who approached the couple during their meal nicked the bag from the bag of his chair.
Mr Georges Falque told police that the young Thai man had chatted them up while they were having dinner and tried to talk them into buying a fake watch.
It was only after the Belgian had rejected the offer and finished his meal that he realized that his bag containing 10,000 Baht in cash was missing from the back of his chair where he had left it. At that time the watch vendor who the couple suspect of having stolen the bag was nowhere to be seen anymore.
Unfortunately, it also appears the CCTV system at the restaurant wasn’t working that night so police should have a hard time trying to catch whoever the real culprit actually was.
