Ruslan Hamitovieh, 36, complained to police that someone stole his clothes after he stripped down to his underwear and sat on the beach at Soi 6 around 2 a.m. May 12.
Asked why he was sitting on the beach in his underwear near the infamous bar street at 2 a.m., Hamitovieh said he couldn’t sleep, so he went for a stroll and, to better enjoy the weather, took off his pants and shirt and placed them next to him.
Ruslan Hamitovieh explains to police how his clothes were stolen.
He was approached by a couple who invited him for a smoke, but he declined, the Russian said. Ten minutes after they left, he noticed his clothes - with hotel key and 1,500 baht in the pockets - missing.
