A man, wanted over the indecent assault of a five year old girl in Yala 14 years ago, has been arrested in Phang Nga.
62 year old Honchao Sae Oun was arrested at a house in Thai Muang district yesterday by the Crime Suppression Division.
Officials say that Mr Honchao was living in Yala in 2004 when he allegedly lured a five year old girl into his home where he is reported to have molested her. The girl’s parents filed a complaint after their daughter explained what had happened.
A warrant for the suspect was issued but the man fled the area. CSD officials eventually re-opened the case and discovered that the suspect had moved north to Phang Nga.
According to police, Mr Honchao has admitted to the charges and is now being taken back to Yala province to face the charges.

Stormy weather approaching the Andaman provinces
The Thai Meteorological Department has announced that a regional tropical depression will affect provinces in the Andaman region including Phuket, Phang Nga, Krabi, Trang, Ranong and Satun until August 6.
The local ‘Met’ office says that people living in the affected areas should beware of dangers from heavy rain.
There will be increasingly large waves in the Andaman sea, expected to be up to 2-3 metres high. The office warns that people and boats going to sea should be careful and small boats should not venture offshore. During the announced period, people are recommended to closely follow up with the TMD.
Throughout the forecast period there will be fresh winds along the Andaman Coast from the west, which will make beaches quite unsafe for swimming. Along Phuket’s west coast coastline beachgoers are urged to check the flags posted on the beaches and obey the instructions of lifeguards.
Phuket’s five day forecast shows the wettest days will likely be Sunday and MondayKeep in contact with The Thaiger by following our Facebook page.
