A beauty salon owner in Lopburi province narrowly escaped an assault after a man repeatedly walked past her shop before attempting to force himself upon her. The incident was later brought to public attention through a cautionary post on the Facebook page Social Hunter Reborn V3.

The Facebook post included an image of the alleged perpetrator, who was dressed in a blue sports shirt covered with a long-sleeved black jacket, a black side bag, white sports trousers, and was notably not wearing underwear. He also wore a helmet and a face mask, concealing his identity, while holding a mobile phone.

The accompanying message warned of a man, sans underwear, who had been loitering around the beauty salon several times. He initially pretended to engage in conversation with the female shop owner but swiftly removed his trousers in an attempt to overpower her. Fortunately, the salon owner managed to flee and save herself from the assailant.

The incident has sparked concerns among locals, in particular women, who are reminded to remain vigilant and cautious of their surroundings. The image and description of the man have been widely circulated on social media in an effort to alert the community and potentially aid in the apprehension of the individual. Community members are encouraged to report any sightings or information that could lead to the identification and arrest of the suspect to ensure the safety of others and prevent any further such occurrences.

The police in Lopburi are currently investigating the incident, seeking to identify and locate the man responsible for this alarming attempt, reported KhaoSod.

They urge anyone with information to come forward and assist in the case.
