A man from the western African nation of Guinea was arrested at a McDonald’s in Bangkok’s Bang Rak area for allegedly raping a 17 year old girl. 58 year old Mamady Keita, reportedly a ruby trader, is accused of luring the girl to a hotel in the Phya Thai area and assaulting her. The girl told police that she’d been raped by an African man who she had met the day before.

The victim told officers the man stopped her to ask for directions, then took her phone number and Line ID. He later he contacted her, offering a job and a new mobile phone. She claims Keita made an appointment with her and then took her to the motel, and that the room was paid for by money Keita took from her wallet.

Initial investigation showed that Keita works as a ruby trader in Bangkok’s Silom district and goes by the name “Michael”. Apparently, he’s been accused of a similar assault before. Police claim Keita allegedly watches his victims, approaches them, and even threatens them before taking them to a motel.

The man has allegedly confessed to the assault, and faces charges of abducting a minor, rape and theft.
