At 00.15 am, on 17 February, Pol.Lt.Col. Tailert Leupeu, Pattaya Police Investigator, Dong Tan Beach, received a report of the incident, which occurred at the entrance to Soi Jularat, Thephrasit Road, and sent a team to investigate.

Arriving at Soi Jularat, police were greeted by the two shaken victims, Miss Gunlayanee Rawboon [32], from Panatnikom, Chonburi and Mr. Gaysorn Maneejan [38], her boyfriend. Miss Gunlayanee related that her boyfriend, who is a waiter at a nearby restaurant on Thephrasit Road, had left their friend’s house, where they had been eating, to return used plates to the restaurant. She said that he had taken some time and she wanted to leave, so she went out in search of him on her motorbike.

Arriving at the entrance of the soi, which was dark, she was apparently stopped by two men, dressed like volunteer police, who demanded to inspect her motorbike. One of them had a machete, which he waved menacingly, warning her not to attempt to escape. After searching, and not finding anything untoward, they then grabbed her motorbike, a black Honda Click and were just about to leave, when Mr. Kaysorn, Miss Gunlayanee’s boyfriend, rode into the soi on a restaurant motorbike. At this point, the robbers decided to take advantage of the situation and relieved Mr. Kaysorn of Bt200 cash, a mobile phone, his Buddha image and some documents, then sped away into the night.

Police alerted police patrols by phone to attempt an interception, but to no avail. Other witnesses in the soi told police that the two robbers were drug dealers, belonging to Tow Yai’s gang. They had apparently been making a habit of robbing people in the soi, for some time. Police took note and are following up the case.
