Parents beware! Child snatch gangs on the loose in Northern Thailand

PAI: -- Police and community leaders have warned parents in a sub-district of Pai not to leave their children home alone.

 

Even letting little ones play alone while parents are out back of the house could have dire consequences after two incidents in Mae Hee sub-district, Daily News reported.

 

Both incidents occurred within hours of each other on February 25th.

 

In the first a woman was out back of her house while her seven year old daughter Jupjaeng played near the road in the front.

 

Supharat Khamuang said that a car came and a man got out and ran up to her child who ran to the back of the house. The man did not see Supharat and tried to grab the child before the mother made her presence known wielding a stick.

 

Shocked by her sudden appearance the man said "I am here to sell yoghurt" then ran off. Supharat pursued him and saw him get into a four door Toyota Vigo with a "carryboy" on the back. It had no plates. There was a another man driving and the engine was running.

 

In the back seat was a woman.

 

The man who had run out was just taller than 150 cms with "isaan" appearance speaking central Thai, she said.

 

Reporters went to another house in Mae Hee sub-district just 3 kilometers away where they spoke to a Karen tribeswoman who had a similar experience just one hour after the other mother on the same day.

 

In this incident a middle aged woman got out of a white van and offered sweets to Khamma Korpoh's 2 year old grandson as he was sitting in the front of their house by the road.

 

Khamma saw this and rushed to his side. The woman was surprised by her sudden appearance and fled the scene. The van had black film on the windows and the mother did not get the plate number.

 

Mae Hee headman Prayun Pimpa said that it was a worrying situation and that children should not be left alone. The gang may be posing as traders, he said.

 

Woraphon Phonmanee the station chief at Pai is investigating and he said he was very concerned by the reports. He said this has never happened in his district to his knowledge and the police are working with community leaders and other authorities to warn the public about the potential for danger to their children.

 

"Children should not be left alone," he warned.

Stupid comment to a serious heartbreaking subject.

 

Happens in all countries, perpetrators are from all walks of life and backgrounds, wherever.

1000 pardons for offending you..please make note of my screen name to avoid such further disappointments..also my apologies to the upstanding thai parents

that ive seen to be so vigilant in protecting thier kids  with a safe enviroment.

 

Live here long enough and see that any advice or actions i take will be looked

upon by slackjawed locals...so i add humor to my cynical and jaded views that the thais seem to encourage with the daily preventable non sense i witness here

 

Lastly i was commenting on the THAI article not on other news around the world

I think many TV readers would not mind at all if you take you cynical and jaded views elsewhere.

Or simply choose not to reply or ignore my views....youre the adult right?

It's a shame that you feel so little for the children of this world that you have to make a joke at their expense. For those of us who have children and even those that simply care about children and children's welfare, I'd suggest that you save your (less than) witty comments for something a lot less serious than child abduction.

I would say the same goes for the lazy parents that dont protect them...

I was quoting the sleazy gangs..go out and find them and get off your pc

Child abduction is rampant all over the world; the reasons why are too disgusting to mention. I guess if there wasn't a market for sex with kids the industry of child kidnapping wouldn't exist (?); therefore we should castrate and hang the perverts that thrive on destroying and stealing the lives of children. I have a samurai sword that someone can borrow if need be.
