A New Zealand man who brought a woman he met in a shopping mall back to his hotel for an afternoon romp woke up with a headache and without his belongings.

Geoffrey Robert King, 55, was treated at Banglamung Hospital after apparently being drugged by 47-year-old Raksanit Saraphark in his hotel room around 3 p.m. Sept. 30.

King said he met Raksanit while strolling through a shopping mall and invited her back to his room for a short-time liaison. But only moments after entering the room, he began feeling groggy after drinking a beer he said she gave him.

Hotel staff copied Raksanit Saraphark’s identification card, and police plan to apprehend her soon. Hotel staff copied Raksanit Saraphark’s identification card, and police plan to apprehend her soon.

The import-export businessman, who said he often visits Pattaya, woke up several hours later missing NZ $2,500, an NZ $960 coat, credit card, plane tickets, 1,300 baht and his hotel key.

Hotel staff had copied the woman’s identification card and she was captured on security-camera footage. Police hope to use both to apprehend her.
