A Sukhothai man is wanted for kidnapping and brutalizing his ex-girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter before abandoning the infant near a pond behind Marivit School in Naklua.
Virasak Saengthawi, 24, was described by former lover Netnapa Suwanwong as an unemployed drug addict she’d lived with for five months after divorcing her first husband. She told police that when she refused another reconciliation offer from Virasak April 27, he’d taken her daughter and fled on a motorbike.
The little 2-year-old was left with major bruising from where a string had been tied around her neck.
The girl was found the next day with bruises on her face and string around her neck. Crying and shaken, the girl was taken to Banglamung Hospital and her photo shown on local Thai-language television.
Fortunately, Netnapa – who said she had been frantically searching for her girl – saw the report and rushed to Banglamung Police Station. In a tearful and touching reunion, mother and 31-month-old toddler were reunited.
