A 33 year old man was arrested after he allegedly set a house on fire because his wife didn’t want to have sex with him.

Narongchan Paksarom allegedly drove his motorcycle to a house in the Isaan province Buriram where his wife was living and approached the home wearing nothing but a towel, according to his wife Ratchaneekorn Yeeram. She told police her husband’s words scared her and she quickly left her home, taking her children, ages 4 and 9, with her.

Narongchan then allegedly set the home on fire. Reports don’t go into detail about how the fire was started, or how much damage was done to the home, but photos show the fire engulfing the entire home. Neighbours say the alleged arsonist also threatened them with a knife.

Police say that Narongchan admitted to starting the fire and said he was angry because his wife didn’t want to have sex with him. Ratchaeekorn says she believes her husband’s actions were because he was high on drugs. Police tested the man’s urine and it came out positive for narcotics.

Police have arrested 3 people and issued arrest warrants for 3 others on extortion charges after they allegedly posed immigration police officers in Rayong and visited business owners with migrant staff, asking them for money.

Police say 6 men wearing immigration police uniforms visited business owners in Rayong on September 15. They allegedly asked for money from the businesses with migrant labourers. Using surveillance camera footage, police say the men met at a petrol station on Khao Lam Road in Chon Buri’s Sriracha district before getting into 3 cars and driving off to Rayong. Police say the men met again at the petrol station in the afternoon.

Investigators were able to track down 3 of the suspects and found the immigration police uniforms they allegedly used. The men face charges of impersonating police officers and extortion. They’ve issued arrest warrants for the 3 others allegedly involved.

“From the footage, we have managed to track down and arrest 3 suspects namely Wisanu or Saneh (45), Ekachai or Dum (36) and Ratchanon or Bank (32). We also found a Toyota pickup truck and the police uniforms that they used on that day.”
