PATTAYA: -- A Swiss tourist and his Thai wife became the latest victims of a Pattaya snatch thief yesterday.

 

Erwin Sabech, 66, and his lady wife Praphaporn Kheunphim, 38, had just been out on their motorcycle feeding some stray dogs.

 

As they drove home past the At Mind Premier Suites Hotel in Central Pattaya around 2pm yesterday a thief in white shirt, jeans and full face helmet grabbed Praphaporn's bag.

 

The tug caused both victims to come off their bike and suffer road rash.

 

Praphaporn said that the bag contained two iPhones, a half baht weight gold ring (worth about 10,000 baht) and a further 10,000 baht in cash.

 

Police and medics were soon on the scene but the thief had got clean away.

 

However, Thai Rath reported that the police have a clear CCTV image of the incident and are hunting for the thief who is aged about 20 - 25.

 

Praphaporn said the couple had been out feeding some soi dogs and were on their way back when the thief struck.

It seems this sort of target robbery by thief or thieves using motor cycles / scooters is becoming very common. See a lot of reports in UK about this now too.

 

Everyone just has to be more careful; and at a time when many countries take measures to prevent their citizens protecting themselves.

Did they get charged for not wearing helmets? :cowboy:

 

A bit of an expensive tug (the OP words not mines Mr. Mod)

Maybe the dogs had a healthy reaction to all those abominable tattoos.

Thieves on Bike, they always come as pair. I suppose Police and locals know them, but they don't dare to prosecute, because they are afraid of revenge.

 

They snatch chains from Russian Tourists. Hope Police check the camera around and arrest. Pattaya has become lucrative business place for Police.

 

Very few news coming to media. There are minute by minute crimes there.
