A 28-year-old Russian tourist who had picked up a Thai hooker from Walking Street and taken her back to his condo early Thursday morning apparently had his drink spiked by the young lady and was robbed of items with an estimated total value of 120,000 Baht.
The Russian told police he had met the young woman going by the name of “Oh” at an undisclosed location on Walking Street and agreed to take her back to his room.
To judge by the timestamp of CCTV images taken at the condominium, let’s assume the young lady is a freelancer and he picked her up at a late-night disco or one of the usual pick-up joints.
A 44-year-old Italian national who claimed he was previously cheated out of a two-million Baht investment in an unidentified “entertainment business” in Pattaya filed a report at the police station early on Wednesday, accusing another foreigner of drugging and robbing him of 600,000 Baht plus a “designer watch” worth another 150,000 Baht in the late hours of Tuesday.
The other foreigner had reportedly claimed he could help the Italian victim retrieve his lost investment, and the 600,000 Baht were meant to be “police fees” for securing the Boys in Brown’s assistance in recovering the victim’s lost money.
A 30-year-old Korean tourist was lucky to wake up just in time Saturday morning after a ladyboy streetwalker had spiked his drink with crushed sleeping pills and began ransacking his room in search of whatever valuables he may have kept there.
Mr Lee Eunsu regained consciousness just in time to confront the aggressive ladyboy thief and alert hotel staff of the robbery in progress. Security guards at the unnamed Central Pattaya hotel detained the ladyboy until police arrived and arrested the notorious repeat offender.
Mr Lee told police he had taken the ladyboy back to his room where he/she offered him a glass of beer, which had obviously been spiked with crushed sleeping pills. Halfway through his drink, Pattaya Daily News report, the Korean man luckily “found something wrong in the glass of beer so he stopped drinking.” Unfortunately almost a mouthful too late.
Mr Lee fell asleep soon after and regained consciousness only when he “heard the sound of ransacking in his room” and found the ladyboy rummaging through his personal items. Despite the ladyboy “screaming” at him and obviously threatening to attack his unruly victim, the Korean tourist was quick-witted enough to call hotel staff to detain the ladyboy thief and alert police of the robbery in progress.
