A 45-year-old German tourist was robbed and smashed in the face with a brick by two ladyboys on Jomtien Soi 5 at around 2 a.m. Friday morning.
Mr. Lutz MÃ¼ller (that’s the name of the German victim) had initially not been quite sure himself what gender the two assailants were who left him with a disfigured face and a broken nose. Having described them as “ladies” or “perhaps ladyboys” at first it was only after the duo were arrested that they were identified as two katoeys.
Mr. MÃ¼ller had reportedly been drinking with his Thai girlfriend in his room on Jomtien Soi 5 and gone out to have one for the road in a nearby bar when the two âladiesâ chatted him up and invited him to a threesome. They allegedly got angry after the German repeatedly rejected the unasked-for proposal.
âCatching him off-guard,â Pattaya One report, one of the creatures brutally smashed the German in the face with a brick, knocking him unconscious for a moment, and stole 4,000 Baht from his trouser pockets before escaping on a motorcycle.
The tourist assumed the assailants were women but conceded that âperhaps [they] could have been ladyboys.â
Fortunately, the Boys in Brown did a good job this time and arrested the two attackers just a day later at a rented house in Pattaya. As was to be expected the duo were identified as two transgender sex workers, aged 20 and 21, who were probably no amateurs either.
