Russian drugged, robbed of iPad, rental car


A Russian man lost his Apple iPad and car after he was apparently drugged by a prostitute he picked up on Walking Street.

Ruslan Momedov, 30, called police to his Kophai 94 hotel room in South Pattaya Aug. 10 after waking up with a headache and without 10,000 baht, his tablet computer and rented Toyota Vios sedan.

He said the night before he’d picked up a woman in Pattaya’s nightlife district and brought her back to his hotel room. The last thing he remembers is drinking a cup of coffee she offered him.

Police sent Momedov to the hospital for treatment and sent out a description of the car, suspecting the suspect had help in stealing the Toyota.
