A transvestite wanted for theft in Phuket has been arrested for robbing an Iranian in Pattaya.
Arman Karimiabadi, 35, reported to Tourist Police that 4,000 baht was stolen by a ladyboy he took to his hotel thinking he’d hired a woman. When he got his surprise, an argument broke out.
Tourist Police Division Pattaya chief Pol. Lt. Col. Piyapong Ensarn and officers arrested Araya Pasuk, 27 of Ayutthaya, at an apartment on Third Road June 26.
Piyapong said the suspect was caught clearly on closed-circuit television cameras, facilitating the investigation and capture. Araya is wanted on a similar warrant in Phuket, he said.
