A repairman was arrested after being beat up by Naklua residents for allegedly trying a rape a university student.
Police found a bruised and battered Rungroj Boongerd, 36, being held by residents of the Lumpini Condominium July 19 after he allegedly broke into a three-story shophouse to attack a 20-year-old Chonburi university student.
The woman said she had been sleeping and awoke to find someone on her. She said she punched her attacker in the face and bit his fingers while screaming.
The victim’s grandmother, who was outside throwing away garbage and had left the back door open, said she heard noises like someone being attacked and called neighbors for help.
Neighbors restrained Rungroj Boongerd until police arrived, after he had tried to rape and rob a woman in Naklua.
Police said Rungroj confessed that he’d been hired to fix the condominium’s roof and spotted the attractive young woman through a window. He said he then decided to rape her and rob the house.
He confessed to even planning out an escape route, but that didn’t go as planned.
He had gone out a window but was tackled by residents near the swimming pool.
