Phuket rapist blames demon drink

PHUKET: A confessed rapist, Peerayut Moottamara, 29, blamed his drunken state for the rape of a work colleague’s 18-year-old girlfriend in Chalong yesterday.

“The woman was cooking in a makeshift kitchen behind the row of terraced worker flats [that both of them lived in] yesterday. I was drinking alcohol earlier in the morning, I was out of control. I saw the woman, who is the girlfriend of a work colleague, at home alone. I felt sexually tempted by her and decided to rape her,” Peerayut told the Phuket Gazette today.

Chalong Police received the report of the rape at 11:20am yesterday from the woman’s boyfriend, who told them that he had already captured the rapist.

“When [the boyfriend] found out about what had happened, he was furious and beat me up. My face was all swollen up and my nose felt like it was broken,” Peerayut said.

“No one has taken me to see the doctor since they had to question me first, but I would really like to see a doctor,” he added.

Capt Chienchai Duangsuwan of the Chalong Police rushed to the scene yesterday to find Peerayut tied up and beaten.

The boyfriend told police that Peerayut had used a 12-inch cooking knife to threaten the woman before he raped her.

“He has been charged with rape, and is still being held at Chalong Police Station. We will have to question him further before sending submitting our case to the court,” said Capt Cienchai.
