Sattahip police are looking for well-known hooligan who allegedly groped the young girlfriend of a local reporter.
Reporter Klitichai Sapaklit, 25, brought the 18-year-old woman to Sattahip Police Station April 18 to file charges against Hathapong Hintua, 32, a resident of Soi Wat Khantamart, for alleged sexual harassment and molestation at a restaurant.
The woman told police she had arrived at the eatery before Klitichai and, while she was waiting, Hathapong and six other men drinking at a nearby table began to flirt with her. One of the rowdy and randy boys took off his shirt and started dancing on a table, but several restaurant guests knocked him down, sending him to the hospital.
Reporter Klitichai Sapaklit points to a photo of Hathapong Hintua, wanted for sexual harassment of his girlfriend (holding photo).
The remaining group members then surrounded her and, she alleged, Hathapong reached his hand into her shirt and grabbed her breast. Other men tried the same thing, she said.
Klitichai arrived and, while breaking up the fracas, the suspect’s brother, Proon Hintua, 31, allegedly threatened him with a broken bottle. Security guards disarmed him and broke up the fight.
Police said Hathapong is a well-known troublemaker who often started fights when drunk.
