Penjan Hales was arrested for allegedly drugging and robbing a British man.

A 64-year-old streetwalker who allegedly drugged and robbed a British john who took her back to his Pattaya condo has been arrested.

Penjan Hales was captured in Bangkok Dec. 18 with a diamond cross pendant belonging to George Andrew Leece, 56.

Leece went to police after waking up the day before with a drug hangover and out about 1,000 British pounds, 3,000 baht and the necklace.

He told police he was walking back to his condominium off Soi Diana when he was propositioned by Penjan and another younger, unidentified woman.

He took them up on their offer and afterward the younger woman left. But Penjan asked to stay with him, claiming she said she was drunk and that her apartment was far away.

The Brit agreed, but ended up getting drugged by sleeping pills, two of which police found in a plastic bag at the scene the next day.

Penjan denied drugging the victim, saying the sleeping pills were hers because she has trouble nodding off. And she said she took only 10 pounds, not 1,000, which she split with her partner.
