Brits abroad do have a certain reputation which may or may not be justified. Now an apparently intoxicated and half naked foreigner, believed to be a British national, was caught and tied up by locals in Central Pattaya after he went on a drunk rampage and ran across the roofs of their homes Tuesday night wearing only his boxer shorts and shouting incoherently.
According to a video report by Thai Channel 8 and translated by Thaivisa.com, the unidentified Farang had been “shouting incoherently as he ran from roof to roof” just after midnight. (Please scroll down for the clip.)
Locals eventually detained the man and tied him up by his hands and feet until police arrived on the scene and poured water over his head in a futile attempt to calm the madman down. The suspected Brit would neither identify himself nor explain his bizarre mission to officers.
Police suggested that the man was drunk and may have been partying hard on Walking Street before “getting lost trying to find his way home.”
Tourist police in Pattaya arrested two ladyboys for stealing the wallet of an Australian tourist as he walked along Pattaya Beach Road in the wee hours of Thursday morning.
Mr Bruce Lauchie McCown, 34, was reportedly chatted up by the ladyboys and, let’s assume, invited to a session of short-time fun with the two of them just after 5 a.m.
It was apparently when they hugged the tourist as they usually do in crimes like these that one of the creatures slipped her/his hand into the victim’s trouser pocket and nicked his wallet containing 16,000 Baht in cash.
There aren’t many black freelance hookers from Africa you will come across in Pattaya but you can always spot a number of mostly Ugandan women at the southern end of the beach promenade near Walking Street.
Now two young women from Uganda, named as Miss Forsia and Miss Dollar, who were lured into the sex trade in Pattaya filed a complaint against two fellow countrywomen at Pattaya Police Station.
The suspects, identified as Marie Nagawa, 29, and Rosemary Nebwiri, 31, had apparently paid for the victim’s air tickets to Thailand (it remains unknown what they had been promised and why they actually boarded the flight to Bangkok) and then forced the women to sell sexual services on Pattaya beach in order to repay their debts.
The story sheds a bit of a light on how Ugandan women come to work in the sex trade in Pattaya.
