At 6.00 pm, on 22nd June, 2008, a Thai woman was riding her Yamaha Fin motorcycle from Pattaya 3rd Road heading to Central Pattaya Road, with another motorbike, ridden by two young men, trailing her. While she was passing Rosdet Food Store, the rider of the bike behind, rode up close alongside as the pillion passenger kicked out at her bike, but both collided and everyone fell off. A male diner in the food store then ran out, attempting to catch the thieves, but only managed to catch one, the other escaping with the gold chain.

The victim, Ms. Wipada Sinceries (33), wife of a farang, residing at Soi Arunotai accordingly reported the incident to Police Major Wittaya Yeunyong, Pattaya police investigator, who rushed to the scene, 500 meters away from the traffic lights of the South Pattaya intersection. There police found Tow (14), a young man , residing near Aksorn Suksa Technology School, North Pattaya, sitting on the ground, much the worse from wear, after being beaten up by onlookers. His red Honda Wave motorbike was lying on the ground next to him.

Ms. Wipada Sinceries told police she had been wearing an exposed, 3 baht-weight, gold chain which had obviously attracted the snatch-thieves. Fortunately, however, ex-Pilot Officer Prapun Hetsewee,(36) had helped her to catch one of the thieves, even though the one that had the gold chain had escaped. However, the police informed her that it should be easy to catch the other man after having interrogated Tow. For his part, Tow told the police that they had been looking for money to pay an outstanding payment for their motorbike accessories, which they owed a motor bike shop.
