An Australian woman said she was awakened in her central hotel room by a naked Thai man trying to rape her.
Sara Bourke, 26, filed a complaint with Pattaya police Aug. 5 about the incident at the Pasadena Lodge on Soi LK Metro. She said she woke up when the man jumped on her. While trying to fight off her attacker, her boyfriend returned to the room, prompting the would-be rapist to flee out a window.
The suspect left behind an unwrapped condom and a pair of shoes.
Investigators discovered an unwrapped condom and pair of shoes the suspect left behind. Outside the window were blood, a mobile phone and a gold ring stolen from the room. Police planned to bring in forensics experts to check the evidence for fingerprints and get blood samples in hopes of catching Bourke’s attacker.
