A man accused of raping an 11 year old girl has been arrested while hiding out in a mountainous forest in the north-eastern province of Khon Kaen. A report in Nation Thailand says 50 year old Prathan Wangson was arrested after villagers in the Manjakhiri district tipped off police when he emerged from hiding to ask for food and water.

Police have been hunting the fugitive since Sunday, when a 35 year old man, from the neighbouring province of Chaiyaphum, filed a police report claiming his 11 year old daughter had been raped by Prathan. Prathan is accused of abducting the child on his bike while her father was sleeping. The girl says she was taken to a vacant temple, where she was made to drink alcohol and take an amphetamine tablet. She says Prathan then raped her.

Police have since discovered the accused was recently released from prison. He has been charged with raping a minor, alongside another charge of raping an elderly woman, as well as drug and theft charges.

    They can’t be helped nor cured and will re-offend. Keep them locked up or put them down.

Heavy rain across the country this weekend – local forecasts | The Thaiger

Heavy rain is expected across much of Thailand over the next few days, mostly as a result of the intensity of a tropical storm crossing into Vietnam today, ‘Noul’, from the South China Sea.

But the remnants of the storm won’t “slam” into Northern Thailand as one news site claimed – rather it will be a lot of rain and increased winds. The storm is expected to cross into Thailand around the Mukdahan province some time early tomorrow, Around the country, Saturday will be the […]
