Half-Naked Englishman Falls Victim To Pattaya Snatch-And-Grab Thief

A scantily clad Englishman stopped his motorbike at Soi Buakhao, Pattaya at about 1 pm, on 26th March 2008, to do some errands en route to Tony‘s Gym to drop off his girlfriend when a motorcycle sneak thief swooped on him, ripped off his 45 gram gold necklace and sped off.

Mr. Patrick Savage (39), a British citizen, hurriedly notified Pattaya Police Captain Suriya Wareewong that his gold necklace had been successfully stolen, snatched by an enterprising motorcycle thief. Mr. Patrick told police that he and his girlfriend had left his room in Cycle Court, Soi Sophon, Pattaya 3rd Road, Central Pattaya earlier. He was without a top due to the heat, making his gold necklace ultra-conspicuous. He had stopped to do some errands in front of Kasikorn Bank, Soi Buakhao, South Pattaya, before taking his girlfriend to Tony’s Gym. Suddenly, a motorcyclist on a blue Honda Wave motorbike, wearing jeans and a grey jacket, with a full-face helmet, obscuring his face, rode up to him and snatched his 45 gram gold necklace. A Buddha image in a gold frame became detached from the necklace and subsequently fell to the ground as the robber made his getaway up the soi beside Xcite Entertainment, Central Pattaya.

Because the snatch-and-grab thief had sped away so quickly, Mr. Patrick didn’t catch his number plate, however, he did attempt to give chase, but lost the thief. Despite attempts to corral the motorcycle robber by Pattaya police, the robber escaped. Although Mr. Patrick later attempted to identify the robber from police records, chances of success are extremely thin due to his face having been obscured by the crash helmet.
