A 45 year old beach umbrella and chair rental provider in Pattaya was apprehended on February 8 following allegations of child sexual abuse.

The suspect, known only by his nickname Tum, was taken into custody by Pattaya police following a warrant issued by the Pattaya Provincial Court. The arrest came after grave allegations of child sexual abuse surfaced against him.

The distressing incident reportedly involved a seven year old Thai-German girl who fell victim to Tum’s alleged abuse. The incident took place at a condominium situated in Soi Thepprasit 17, Jomtien. The Pattaya police took Tum into custody based on the victim’s and witnesses’ statements.

Hailing from Surin province in Thailand’s northeastern region, Tum has been operating as a beach umbrella and chair rental provider on the renowned Jomtien Beach. However, his claims of innocence during the subsequent questioning were at odds with the victim’s and witnesses’ accounts, leading to his arrest, reported Pattaya News.

Despite his protestations of innocence, the suspect expressed a desire to apologise to the young victim and her distraught parents. Legal proceedings will now be initiated as the case progresses.

In related news, in December last year, German media uncovered a dark tale of child sexual abuse in Thailand, where a suspect revealed his desperate bid to escape justice by using bribery. The story began in Thailand, where a notorious foreigner involved in child sexual abuse was arrested. The Thai authorities held a press conference to announce the arrest, sending shockwaves through the nation.

In other news, Children and Women Protection Sub-Division and Chana Songkram Police Station officers swooped on an underage prostitution racket and arrested a 19 year old pimp as she accompanied two underage sex workers to a hotel in Bangkok. The pimp was arrested on Wednesday, February 7, at the hotel on Prachathipatai Road in the Phra Nakhon district of Bangkok, and two underage sex workers were rescued as the victims.
