The Immigration Police have arrested a pair of foreign criminals after robbing a fellow foreigner on a road trip to Pattaya from Bangkok. The two men made friendly contacts with their victims before arranging to meet and robbing them.

Mohammad, a man from Pakistan, and Kuldip, a man from India, have been charged with robbery. In this case the victim was another Indian who wanted to work in Thailand.

The traveller from India asked for help on a Facebook Page called Tesco Man Power PVT Ltd Thailand. This page aims to assist Indian citizens in Thailand and is a go-to blog for Indians working, retired or looking to work in Thailand.

The victim was contacted by the 2 suspects who made friendly overtures. After talking online for a while the man decided to travel to Thailand on June 25. The three met on Sukhumvit Road and agreed to travel together to Pattaya.

Things started turning sour during the road-trip. The suspects forced the victim to hand over his phone, and cash worth 100,000 baht. After they robbed him, they threw his luggage and passport out the car window before kicking him out of the car. The suspects then drove away leaving the man stranded in Nong Nan sub-district in Chachoengsao Province, basically the middle of nowhere.

Immigration Police contacted the Nong Nan Police to help investigate the case after the victim came in and reported what had happened to him. They eventually arrested Mohammad in a village in Samut Prakarn, south of Bangkok.

After arresting Mohammad, he told police more information that led to the arrest of Kuldip at a condo at Lad Krabang, Bangkok.

The pair will be prosecuted and deported back to their countries. Police suspect that the current victim wasn’t their first victim falling for the same plan and ending up stranded somewhere between Bangkok and Pattaya.
