On 29 October 2007, at 1 AM, volunteer police notified Police Lieutenant Colonel Santi Chainiranam that they had arrested an intoxicated man from Konkaen Province, who used a pen-gun as a weapon in an attempt to force a girl to have sex with him, against her will. The incident occurred under the bridge to Bali Hai Pier. Police rushed to the crime scene.
At the scene of the incident, a number of volunteer police officers had detained Mr. Kriengkrai Phengphet (35), from Konkaen Province, a staff member at S.P. Printing shop. The man was in a highly intoxicated condition. He had cuts on his lips and severe bruises on his body. Police confiscated evidence including a pen-gun containing one loaded .22 caliber bullet, and another five bullets that were in a plastic bag in his trousers. Police also confiscated his red and white Honda Wave motorbike, license 887, Chonburi. Miss Wasana Sodakul, nickname “A” (21), the victim, from Udonthani and her boyfriend, Mr. Piyawat Suenparn (21) identified the suspect.

Miss “A” told police that she and her boyfriend came, by motorbike, to watch the “Suek-dang-duad” football match at Bali Hai Pier. After the game, they went for a leisurely ride and stopped at the bridge. Miss “A” was hungry and asked her boyfriend if he would get something for her to eat. She waited for Mr. Piyawat in the darkened area, while he went to purchase some food. While waiting for her boyfriend to return, a very drunk Mr. Kriengkrai approached on his motorbike and suddenly grabbed her arm and propositioned her for sexual activity. She was, understandably, shocked and broke away from him and ran.

However, Mr. Kriengkrai was persistent and chased after her. He pulled out a pen-gun and demanded that she stop. Luckily, her boyfriend came back on his motorbike. Miss “A” shouted out and got on the motorbike and got away from her attacker. The couple ran to the volunteer police and asked for help. The police chased Mr. Kriengkrai, who was highly intoxicated and fell over. The police managed to detain him and keep the evidence.

Mr. Kriengkrai, who sustained injuries, said he had consumed some homemade whiskey after work. He spotted Miss “A” standing alone and assumed that she was available for sexual services. When she refused his advances, he claimed that he was about to go back home. He denied knowing anything else and denied that the gun was his. However, police did not buy his story. The volunteer police had already detained him with the evidence and he had to surrender. Mr. Kriengkrai will have to try to convince a court of his innocence.
