Naked intruder gets painful lesson

NAKHON SRI THAMMARAT: A would-be rapist got his comeuppance on January 7, when he climbed naked through the wrong window and met his intended victim’s mother – meat cleaver in hand.

Twenty-eight-year-old villager Phongphetch Bunyadisak climbed through the window of a home in his village in Muang District, allegedly after the prize-winning teenage schoolgirl who lived there.

When he crawled under the mosquito net on the ground floor however, he found not the young girl he had hoped for but her 52-year-old mother, Phimphimon Phetchcharoen.

Mrs Phimphimon said she was awaken around 11:30pm to find a naked and extremely drunk Mr Phongphetch trying to fondle her. She managed to fight him off, get up and grab a cleaver. Mr Phongphetch made a wild dash for the window, but not before Mrs Phimphimon landed two blows on his back and head.

Mrs Phimphimon shouted for help from neighbors. The villagers called the police then formed a posse to hunt down Mr Phongphetch. At first the villagers could find only Mr Phongphetch jeans, abandoned outside Mrs Phimphimon’s window along with an empty bottle of lao khao (cheap clear spirits).

Police investigators noticed a trail of blood leading from the window into woods behind the house. At the end of the blood trail they found Mr Phongphetch, still naked and curled up in the fetal position.

Officers took the suspect to Maharaj Hospital to have his wounds stitched up and then to Muang District Police Station for questioning. Mr Phongphetch, however, was too drunk to give a coherent statement.

Mrs Phimphimon said this was the third time Mr Phongphetch had tried to sneak into her house, but the previous times she had woken up and scared him off before he managed to enter.

Mr Phongphetch is an unemployed drug addict who is always stealing from other villagers, she said. He also has a bad temper and frequently assaults people, even monks, Mrs Phimphimon alleged.

He was recently released from prison after serving time for the attempted murder of his own mother, she added.

Deputy Inspector Charin Khao-iam of the Muang District Police said the villagers are all thoroughly fed up with Mr Phongphetch’s behavior.

It was good luck that Mr Phongphetch got the wrong person and felt the sharp end of Mrs Phimphimon’s cleaver, he said.
