Police are searching for a man who assaulted and robbed a Banglamung School teacher in her classroom after classes ended.
Kindergarten teacher Rungtiwa Lakkratok, 39, was doing extra work when a Thai man in his mid-30s appeared, assaulted her and stole her purse containing 5,600 baht and personal property.
Fellow teacher Patcharang Ratpradit, 34, encountered the man earlier who claimed to be a parent of a Banglamung School student. However, she told police he acted strangely and suspected he may be mentally ill.
Police are investigating, but Patcharang provided security-camera footage of the attack to the press in hopes of bringing the suspect to justice more quickly.
