The five month ordeal for a family came to a head when police arrested a 24 year old man, infamously known as “Frame Wave125,” for allegedly luring a teenage girl to live with him at a construction site. This arrest followed a dramatic chase, with police finding an improvised firearm during the search of the suspect’s room today.

The case began on November 3, last year, when the parents, and brother of the 14 year old victim noticed unusual behaviour from their daughter following a routine trip to and from school.

After persistent questioning, they learned that their girl and the suspect had slept together earlier in the day. This revelation led the parents to file a legal complaint.

However, the situation escalated on December 14, when, after being dropped off at school, the girl disappeared alongside the suspect at 9am. The parents’ frantic search ensued for over five months until their plea for help led the Metropolitan Police Bureau to discover that the suspect was hiding out in the Chalong Krung area of Lat Krabang, working in construction.

Upon the police’s arrival at the site, the suspect, identified only as Charnchai, attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended after a 200-metre chase led by Police Lieutenant Colonel Pitthak Srikacha, an analyst with the bureau.

Charnchai was informed of his arrest warrant issued by the Samut Prakan Provincial Court, dated January 4, 2024.

During the arrest, the officers searched with the suspect’s consent and found a makeshift pen gun with four .38 calibre bullets.

Hidden relationship

Charnchai confessed that he had met the girl in March of last year while working at a company in the Bang Bo area. Despite keeping their relationship hidden from the girl’s parents, they would meet and he would take her to and from school to his rented room.

Eventually, the girl’s parents became aware of the relationship, prompting Charnchai to flee with her to a new location where they attempted to start a new life together.

The suspect and the recovered items were taken to the Chalong Krung Police Station for further legal proceedings.

Moreover, the missing girl had been found at the construction site and was safely reunited with her family.

Police Colonel Theeradech Thamsuwan, head of the Special Branch Police, used this opportunity to urge parents to be more vigilant regarding their children’s safety and to understand them better.

He warned that deceiving minors is not only illegal but also morally reprehensible. The Metropolitan Police Bureau urged anyone with information about such crimes to report to the Sueb Nakornbal IDMB Facebook page, as officers are ready to respond around the clock.

The police affirmed their commitment to promptly address any public grievances, in line with the policies of the acting National Police Chief, Police General Kittiratt Panphech, and his deputies, reported Khaosod.
