British Man Arrested In Pattaya For Luring Underage Boy For Sexual Purposes

A British citizen, Mr. Andrew John Gallacher, 46, was arrested by police officers of the Child and Women‘s Protection Squad early this morning, May 23, 2008, for luring an underage, 15-year-old boy into a rented "short-time" room in a guest house in Pratamnak Road, South Pattaya, with the intention of indulging in oral sex. He was caught in the act of removing his clothes, prior to committing the offence.

Pol.Lt.Col. Phongpisanu of the Child and Women’s Protection Squad stated that Pattaya Police have been tracking down foreigners who are in the habit of taking underage children for sex in the city. In this particular case, early in the morning of May 23, a young boy, going under the alias of Nat, 15, was wandering around the gay bars of Soi Sunee with a group of friends, when he was called over by Mr. Gallacher, who apparently propositioned him. Police, on duty in the area, who happened to witness the event and noticing the two going off in the direction of Pratumnak Road, followed discretely. Mr. Gallacher took Nat to his room which he had rented for a sex session. Police entered the guest house and caught the two preparing to indulge, accordingly arresting the Brit at 3.30.

Young Nat told police that he had been invited by Mr.Gallacher to accompany him to his room to perform oral sex with him for Bt1,000. Police charged Mr. Gallacher with intent to perform an obscenity with a minor aged between 15 and 18 years-of-age. Nat was also handed over to the Pattaya investigator for further investigation.


Editor’s comment: it cannot have escaped most readers’ attention that the frequency of reports of this nature are almost a daily occurrence. This indicates that Pattaya Police is radically stepping up its campaign to eradicate child and female exploitation, by foreigners, especially. Whilst we have nothing against homosexuality, we would strongly advise individuals who are so inclined to seek partners who are over 18 years-of-age, which will save the police and community the expense of having to arrest and incarcerate offenders and will preserve the good name of foreigners, in general.
