A young female student narrowly escaped an attempted sexual assault near her residence yesterday when a man followed and tried to attack her outside her apartment. Her quick thinking and cries for help thwarted the assailant.

Footage from a CCTV camera installed near a housing project on Bang Sao Thong Road in Samut Prakan captured the incident. The video showed the student, referred to as A, a third-year secondary school student, returning home around 4pm. She had taken a motorcycle taxi from school and was walking towards her building when the incident occurred.

The footage revealed that the perpetrator had been following her on a motorcycle. As A entered the alley leading to her apartment building, the man rode past her before doubling back and driving into the alley.

Another camera angle showed him parking his motorcycle at the front of A’s building and then swiftly making his way up the stairs to her floor.

A’s afterschool routine involves returning to her apartment, where she usually waits alone until her parents return from work.

On the day of the incident, she had no idea someone was following her, As soon as A unlocked the door to her residence, the fiend attempted to push her inside, groping her chest and repeatedly demanding to enter.
