One of two Thai prostitutes suspected of robbing a pair of Indian men was arrested when she was apprehended by one of the victims while allegedly trying to flee.
Prakai Prasith, 30, was taken into custody outside Tantrarak School in Central Pattaya around 2 a.m. April 3. At the scene, Jitendra Nistr, 60, and Vitgsh Patel, 36, claimed Prakai and an accomplice stole their handbag containing 40,000 baht.
Prakai Prasith was slightly when she crashed her motorbike whilst trying to flee the scene of the robbery.
Nistr told police he and Patel were walking back to their hotel when Prakai and another woman, each driving a motorbike, pulled up and solicited their sexual services. The Indians agreed to go back to the hookers’ Soi Paniad Chang apartment and jumped on the back of the bikes.
Along the way, the Thais and Indians got into a dispute and the women pulled over in front of the school where the second, unnamed woman allegedly snatched the handbag and drove off.
Prakai, however, lost control of her motorbike and slammed into a utility pole. She was slightly injured enabling the Indian men to detain her until police arrived.
Prakai denied being involved in the robbery, but police locked her up while they investigated further.
