Police Lieutenant Colonel Sutham Chaosritong was notified at 8:30 pm and dispatched a police team to the house at 159 / 115, Moo. 5 Naklua, Banglamung, next to the Lotus shopping center in North Pattaya. A very agitated housemaid, 45 year old Mrs. Sri [alias], was awaiting their arrival. She explained that she went out to do some shopping that evening and on her return at 8.30pm, she found a man in a sleepy state standing behind the door of the second bedroom on the second floor which was normally empty and used as a store room.

She was shocked by the sight of the intruder and screamed for help from the neighbours. The man then shut the door and locked himself inside. She immediately called the police.

After failing to convince the intruder to open the door police broke into the room and arrested the man, Mr Prajuk Jark Ngoo-Leum, [20]. He told police that he had climbed into the house and got into the room at around 6.00 pm, intending to take some valuables, but instead fell asleep.

When he woke up and walked to the door to continue his search for items to steal, the maid opened the door and saw him. He shut the door immediately and tried to find a way out but the police arrived before he could manage to escape.

Mr Prajuk confessed to the attempted burglary and is being held at the Pattaya police station, under investigation for trespassing.
