Thai Rath is reporting that Police have arrested a man who tied up a Hua Hin cleaner then abducted her daughter from a foreigner’s house. The incident happened last Tuesday in Hua Hin.

The mother and daughter were working as cleaners for the house but were confronted at knife point by the intruder. The man is reported to have tied the mother to the stairwell before attempting to sexually assault her daughter and then forcing her to drive away on the motorcycle owned by the mother. The 18 year old daughter was let go near a Car Care business and the suspect fled on the bike.

The hunt for the man traversed across the country from Hua Hin to Bangkok then to Udon Thani.

The Prajuab Khiri Khan deputy police chief, Pol Col Nirandorn Sirisangchai, said the case was very serious and that the public demanded quick action. Many police jurisdictions were involved in the hunt resulting in the arrest of 23 year old Watcharapong Waraha who was registered as living in the Pahonyothin area of Phayathai in Bangkok.

The 23 year old was finally tracked down to an address in Udon Thani and taken into custody on a warrant. He was found in possession of the mobile phone stolen from the mother. He confessed to the crime saying that he dumped the stolen motorcycle by the toilets at Hua Hin railway station before boarding a train to Hualampong station in Bangkok.  From there he traveled to Udon Thani where he was arrested.

Watcharapong had ten other cases of theft on his records.

Two brothers from Phatthalung have been arrested in their province over their alleged role in the pickup-truck crash in Prachuap Khiri Khan on November 30. The incident led to two deaths and 12 injuries of illegal Burmese migrant workers.

Suspects, 29 year old Anurak Khongdaeng and 27 year old Sompong Khongdaeng, for whom the Prachuap Khiri Khan Court had issued arrest warrants for aiding illegal migrants to avoid arrest, were taken into custody in Tambon Tha Khae, in Mueang Phatthalung, where they had fled to after the night crash last Friday.

The brothers also had reportedly stopped in the Khuan Khanun district to clean up their getaway pickup  in an attempt to avoid police detection and destroy evidence.

Their vehicle was one of two pickups used to transport 26 Burmese, who had trekked through the Tanaosri mountain-range forest and crossed a natural border into Thailand, heading to a labour market in Malaysia.

Two year battle for hospital compensation

Two year battle for hospital compensation | The Thaiger

Thai media 77jowo is reporting that the Hua Hin Hospital and the Department of Public Health have agreed to return more than 20,000 baht to a man from the Netherlands who claims he was ripped off by the hospital because he was a foreigner.

Back in September 2016 a man, Erwin Buse, complained to the government watchdog Damrongtham in Prajuap Khiri Khan that he had been obliged to pay 300 baht for each visit to the hospital and an unexplained 858 baht “admission fee”. The man, a former engineer, was suffering from prostate cancer at the time.

He claims that he was ripped off because he was a foreigner. By that time he had already been in Thailand ten years and had a Thai wife.

But he says justice was slow in coming. He recounted that visits to the hospital were painful round trips of 200 kilometers on a motorcycle. He says the hospital kept on coming up with excuses not to pay him.

But 77Jowo reported good news for Mr Buse on a recent visit to the Prajuap Damrongtham office. He was told by the office that he would be receiving 20,000 baht from the Hua Hin Hospital and the Department of Public Health by the end of this month. The fight has been dragging on for two years.

Thai media is reporting that Mr Buse now suffers from intestinal cancer, has no job and looks after goats. His Thai wife runs a salon in Makham Khong, Koh Lak, they said.

400,000 baht Hua Hin shark net comes loose again | The Thaiger

Talknewsonline is reporting that the shark net installed along Sai Noi Beach in Hua Hin has come loose for the second time and floated ashore.

The net was installed back in September after a Norwegian tourist Werner Danielsen was bitten by an alleged shark while swimming at the beach last April.

Official visited the beach yesterday after a local hotel manager called to say the net had come loose from its anchoring buoys in heavy seas. Officials confirmed that it was the second time the net had become detached but that it would be fixed by next week.

The net was installed at a cost of 400,000 baht after much debate following the attack by what was thought to be a bull shark. Mr Danielsen, who has a Thai wife and visits Thailand each year, needed expensive treatment in two hospitals and racked up bills of a reported 300,000 baht during his recovery.
