PATTAYA – January 26, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 9 a.m., the arrest of a serial child molester was announced by Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha Thartsart, Commander, Chonburi province; Pol. Col. Supphathee Boonkrong, Deputy Commander; Pol. Col. Somneuk Jankate, Superintendent, Nong Preu police station; Pol. Lt. Col. Khongsak Boonseusuwan, Deputy Superintendent; Pol. Capt. Kornphong Sukvisit, Deputy Inspector; and the detective police team.

The police had been notified of the suspect’s crimes by Mrs. Paweena Hongsakul, chairman of the Paweena Hongsakul foundation for children and women. The suspect was identified as Petty Officer First Class Anake Duangfu, age 40, a sailor on the Naresuan, a second Frigate ship of the Royal Thai Fleet.

The arrest warrant from Pattaya provincial court, dated January 25, accuses the suspect of raping a child age not over 13 years old who is not his wife, and committing an obscenity to a child not over 15 years old, whether that child consented or not. Police seized a 9 mm pistol and 6 bullets, along with a home computer containing more than 50 obscene video clips and many pictures of nude girls.

The suspect’s arrest was a result of coordination between the police of Nong Preu police station and the Paweena Hongsakul foundation. The foundation had received a report of the sexual assault by the girl’s mother, “Mrs. Aew” (alias), age 27, whose 9-year-old daughter is a grade 2 primary school student in Amphur Banglamung.

Her daughter is also developmentally disabled, Mrs. Aew said. In her complaint, Mrs. Aew said that in the evenings of December 26 and 27 of last year, the suspect had deceived her daughter and raped her in his house in Rattanakorn village 3 on Soi Khao Noi in Nongpreu, Banglamung.

The suspect sexually assaulted her daughter twice, and had used a mobile phone to record video clips and photographs of him committing obscenities with the victim. The first sexual assault occurred on December 26, after the girl came back from school and was riding her bicycle in the village. At that time, the suspect was in a nearby house, and he spoke to the girl to deceive her to play toys and watch television in his house.

The innocent girl has a slower development of brain than other children of the same age, so she believed him, and walked after the craving sailor into his house. He began playing the X-rated movies and cartoons and a video clip of him and his wife having sex together. Then he let girl B to sit on the chair and he sat on the floor and hugged and kissed and molested the girl, while using his cellphone to record a video clips and take photographs. Afterwards, he threatened the girl not to tell anyone.

The second assault occurred the next evening, when the suspect again deceived girl B to rape, which he also recorded on a video clip. Then he released the girl to go back home and acted as if nothing had happened with the girl. However, later the close friend of the suspect accidentally saw the video clips of the suspect sexually assaulting the girl. His close friend could not endure the suspect’s bad behavior, so the friend copied the pictures and video clips, which he showed to Mrs. Paweena Hongsakul at her foundation. She then followed up to contact the victim’s mother.

Mrs. Paweena then relayed the evidence to Pol. Col. Somneuk Jankate, Superintendent, Nong Preu police station, to ask for an arrest warrant from Pattaya provincial court to arrest the suspect. A detective police team then arrested the suspect at a house in Rattanakorn village 3 while he prepared to travel to relax in upcountry during a scheduled vacation of 15 days.

Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha revealed that when the police and the girl’s mother tried to ask the victim about the sexual assaults, the girl didn’t dare to say anything because she was still frightened about the events. So the officers coordinated with the social worker to restore her mind, and they talked with the girl until the truth was revealed that she had really been sexually violated. The officers sent the victim to the hospital to check for evidence of sexual abuse and are awaiting the results.

The suspect denied the accusations and claimed his sexual contact with the victim was consensual. However, the police didn’t believe him because while he was being investigated, the police discovered that the suspect had molested many girls, but the victims didn’t dare notify the police because the suspect was a sailor and they were afraid that they will not be secure.

Mrs. Paweena Hongsakul revealed that after she received the complaint about the suspect, she forwarded the information for the police officers to immediately investigate, so the police were able to seize the exact evidence of video clips and photographs of the suspect committing his crimes.

She coordinated with Banglamung police station to issue the arrest warrant, and from inspecting his computer, they found more than 50 video clips and pictures of nude girls. The suspect was denied bail, because he is a sailor who may threaten the witnesses and affect the case if he is released.

Mrs. Paweena would like to inform any other parents of children assaulted by the suspect but who are afraid to reveal themselves, that they should come to the police and file the complaint. The parents should not feel ashamed or fear possible damage to their families’ reputations, because all of the information in these cases is kept confidential by police, she said.
