Ukrainian tourist wakes up to real nightmare

PHUKET: A Ukrainian woman reportedly woke up to a strange man in her room yesterday, who grabbed her cellphone before bolting down the stairs, she told police.

Oleksandra Drobinova, 29, said that she was asleep in the afternoon, when she woke up to see a stranger, who she believed to be Thai, pick up her phone off the dressing table.

Ms Drobinova was staying at the Good Dream Guesthouse on Nanai Road.

“The suspect evidently smashed the building’s locked glass door before escaping on a motorbike,” said Patong Police Superintendent Chaiwat Auikam.

Police are reviewing CCTV footage before launching a manhunt.
