Two teenage women lodged a complaint concerning a 38 year old man, who had allegedly assaulted a female teacher in a school in Chiang Rai. The incident occurred at around 3pm yesterday (January 22), in a school at the Ban Pong Klua village in the Doi Lan sub-district of Chiang Rai province.

According to the 18 year old complainant, the accused, Nirund, had contacted her on January 17, requesting her to arrange a liquor party at Ban Pong Klua on January 18. She and her 17 year old companion arrived at the designated location at 9pm on the agreed date.

Nirund claimed he had to run an errand at a convenience store and sought to borrow her motorcycle. Since the vehicle was newly purchased, she was hesitant to let him use it alone. She, therefore, sent her friend along with him.

However, Nirund took them to a house nestled amidst a garden under the pretext of taking a bath. He then produced a hallucinogenic drug and, after consuming it, threatened the 17 year old with a gun before assaulting her. When the news about Nirund’s arrest for assaulting the teacher broke out, the girls decided to come forward with their complaint, reported KhaoSod.

The Chiang Rai Provincial Police Commander, Pol. Col. Manop Senakul, revealed that Nirund was a serial offender involved in several cases, including assaulting a teacher and, now, tricking a young woman into arranging a liquor party only to assault her.

This incident happened just two days before he assaulted the teacher. He urged others who might have been victimised by Nirund to come forward and file complaints for simultaneous case proceedings, as Nirund was considered a societal threat.
