Nongprue Police, who are responsible for the East-side of Pattaya, arrested a 67 year old man on Sunday Morning, accused of sexually assaulting a 6 year old girl, 4 times.
Police received a complaint from the Mother of the girl, who both live in a small housing estate in East Pattaya. The Mother works at Night and leaves her daughter in the care of a 67 year old neighbor, later named as Khun Somshai.
On Sunday Morning, she returned early from work, at about 4am, and noticed some suspicious behavior from Khun Somshai, which led her to believe he may have sexually assaulted her daughter. As she arrived home, she noticed he seemed ruffled and was also seen to place his underpants in his trouser pocket as if he had got himself dressed in a hurry. He quickly left on his bicycle. The girl appeared distraught and reportedly told her Mother what had happened.
Later in the morning the pair presented themselves at Nongprue Police Station and the girl was sent for a medical examination confirming that there had been a disturbance in her genital region but full sexual intercourse had not taken place.
Eventually the suspect was found at a friend’s house in Soi Neun Plub Wan after a search for him took place. It is thought the suspect’s daughter provided Police with information of his whereabouts after she was told about the allegations made against him.
Khun Somshai confessed to assaulting the girl on four separate occasions when he was looking after the child while her Mother went out to work. He had attempted intercourse on the four occasions but was unable to penetrate the girl, according to his Police Statement.
Khun Somshai was charged with sexually assaulting a minor under the age of 15 and currently awaits a Court appearance.
