Aleksandr Volokhov, 33, said he was walking back to his hotel on a small street next to the Laguna Beach Condominium in Nongprue when a Thai man in his early 20s drove by slowly on a motorbike.

The man smiled and waved at the tourist and Volokhov returned the gesture, only to have the biker grab his necklace worth 15,000 baht and speed off.
