American assault victim thinks she has found her attacker

RAWAI: One of two American women brutally assaulted by motorcycle-borne snatch bandits in recent months called the Gazette late this afternoon to say she is “100% certain” that the man who assaulted her was the same man arrested by Chalong Police early Sunday morning.

For background on the case, see the two previous stories here and here:

Sheila McCormick, who survived an attack by two men on a motorbike on August 15, said she is preparing to visit Chalong Police to identify 24-year-old Manop “Nop” Tongboon as her attacker after seeing his picture on the Gazette website today.
