Two transvestites claim they were robbed and assaulted by a group of seven men led by a Pattaya city civil defense volunteer.

Pornkaran Sumrum, 27, and Phaisan Chanthok, 37, filed a report with police early Oct. 3 that while sitting on Pattaya Beach civil defense volunteer Sumraan Meebutr approached them and demanded to see their identification cards.

The two drag queens refused, telling Sumraan he lacked any authority to search or arrest them. An argument ensued and the lady boys said Sumraan left, only to return shortly after with six other men.
