A naked British tourist who had spent the night with a ladyboy was severely injured Saturday morning after falling from the balcony of his rented room at the Hideaway Guesthouse just off Soi Buakhao.
The unidentified man in his 40s was found lying naked in the street at around 5 a.m. He had suffered serious head injuries and was quickly rushed to hospital where his injuries were described as non-life threatening and the man has reportedly been recovering well.
Although police have not been able to interview the victim yet it appears that foul play or a suicide attempt can be ruled out at this stage.
An alert German tourist made a citizen’s arrest Tuesday night after he caught a ladyboy pickpocket red-handed on a Baht bus in Pattaya.
The elderly katoey had reportedly moved closer and closer on the Baht bus, slipped his/her hand into the foreigner’s pocket and nicked 1,220 Baht when the 59-year-old German noticed what was going on and restrained the culprit.
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.
