Two Italian men robbed by women they picked up for in-room massages expressed impatience with police for not immediately finding their unidentified masseuses.
Salvatore Mancuso, 61, and Svaldo Dolcege, 63, complained to the media Sept. 9 about a lack of progress in the investigation into the drugging and robbery that occurred two nights earlier in their hotel on Soi Buakaow.
Salvatore Mancuso and Svaldo Dolcege urge police to hurry up and solve this crime before their holiday is over and they have to return home.
The Italians told police the two women propositioned them on Beach Road for massages. They accepted, never bothering to get the women’s names. Once back at their rooms, they drank wine coolers purchased by the women and, shortly after, passed out.
They awoke the next night to find their room ransacked and about 600,000 baht in cash and electronics missing, including a 150,000 baht camera.
Salvatore, who said he was a British journalist, and his friend complained to the media, wondering why the women have not yet been caught. They said they are leaving soon and would like this case wrapped up.
As for evidence, police only have a security camera photo to go on.
