A German man claiming to be a well-connected police volunteer and translator was arrested for allegedly molesting and photographing underage girls, impersonating a police office and overstaying his visa for seven years.
Pattaya Tourist Police raided the Pradapyan Apartments on Soi Nokkhao in Central Pattaya Aug. 10, allegedly finding 32-year-old Pascal Conner naked in bed with a 13-year-old girl. He had been reported to police by disgusted neighbors.
German Pascal Conner has been arrested and charged with sexual assault of minors under the age of 15, possession of child pornography and immigration offenses.
A subsequent search of the room uncovered five memory cards with pornographic photos of Conner having sexual relations with other underage girls, as well as a sex video of him with the girl detained at the scene.
Police said Conner, at first, tried to escape arrest by claiming he worked for a high-ranking Chonburi police superintendent and that he was a translator for a government agency.
In fact, police discovered his police volunteer identification cards were fake and he had no passport or visa for the past seven years.
He was charged with impersonating a Royal Thai Police officer, possession of child pornography and suspected sexual assault of minors under the age of 15, as well as immigration charges.
