Walking between Soi 5 and 6, officers responded to the urgent calls of 50-year-old Peter Chernov. He claimed a ladyboy had come up to him, asking for a hug. At the same time, another took a wallet from his pocket.
Peter Chernov points to the two thieves that managed to get his wallet, but were unable to allude police.
Police were immediately able to track down the pickpockets, arresting 20-year-old Chatree Khuanthong of Laos and a 16-year-old Puchong Loimunkong from Nongbualamphu. It was Puchong’s second arrest this month for theft. Inside one of their handbags they found Chernov’s wallet.
Both were charged with theft and Chatree with illegally entering the kingdom.
