She told police that she heard the voice of the tourist crying for help, so she came out with her son, and saw the robbers escaping on the motorcycle. Ms. Nuanwong told police that the robbery is nothing new. She said tourists are often robbed in the area because it is dark and not well lit, and there are no CCTVs.
