BANGKOK – November 28, 2014 [Pattaya Daily News]; Pol.Lt.Gen. Prawuth Thawornsiri (Acting Commissioner), Pol.Maj.Gen. Thitirat Nongharnphithak (Deputy Commissioner) and Pol.Col. Kornchai Khlaikhlueng (Deputy Commander) together held a news conference at the Central Investigation Bureau in Bangkok about the arrest of Mr. Thomas Andrew Ericson who is also known as Andrew McLean or Barry Stewart, American nationality, with a fake British and U.S. passports.

 

On the 15th September 2014, US authorities alerted Thai authorities that Mr Thomas who has an arrest warrant from Denton County, Texas, had fled to Thailand to avoid arrest. The warrant was related to sexual and physical assaults and the U.S. had already revoked Mr Thomas’s passport.

 

Pol.Lt.Gen. Prawuth said that from investigating Mr Thomas he also had an arrest warrant from the Thai criminal court no. 183/2554 dated 2nd February 2011 in allegations of raping and assaulting.

 

During his escape from prosecution, Mr Thomas used his fake passports to apply for an English teacher position in many secondary schools and working for a mass media company via the internet. Recently Mr. Thomas was running his own language school called “EDD” in Khon Kaen province where the police arrested him.

 

Pol.Lt.Gen. Prawut said that based on our inquiries, Mr Thomas assaulted many victims in Thailand, and some victims were lecturers at famous private and state universities including a lot of female employees of many well-known private companies .The female victims came to him as they wanted to improve their English skills. After the assaults they didn’t notify the police because they felt humiliated so it was difficult to arrest the defendant.

 

Upon questioning a lot of the victims, the police perceived that he is suffering from bipolar and couldn’t control himself and always uses violence to assault victims while having sex with them.
