A 26-year-old ladyboy was arrested on Walking Street early Wednesday morning for being part of pickpocket team that stole the smartphone of a tourist from Jordania.
The 61-year-old tourist told police that he had been strolling along Walking Street on his way back to his hotel room when the ladyboy and a female accomplice chatted him up and started groping up, proposing the usual naughty kind of late-night fun.
Only when it was too late he noticed that his phone was missing from his trouser pocket and called the police to assist him.
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 young Norwegian tourist was beaten unconscious by a group of Thai men in front of the Reggae & Soul Bar on Walking Street early on Thursday after he had allegedly groped one of the men’s girlfriend’s breasts.
