The victims told police the two men had approached them and persuaded them to go to Koh Larn to see monkeys on the island. However, they claimed the men then pulled screwdrivers and threatened them. They were then taken to Nang Nuan Beach and raped.

The pair said they initially didn’t plan to file charges, as they felt embarrassed. However, they later discovered their passports had been stolen, likely by their attackers.

They then contacted the Chinese embassy, which sent a representative to take them to Pattaya Police Station.

Police said the two confessed, arguing that the women were very attractive and that they just couldn’t help themselves.
