The man arrested, a former security guard at a night club, admitted that he and another man had raped a 23-year-old tourist.
Theerasak Bhutrach, 26, told police that he met the woman at the Grabana Grus Nightclub on Soi Bangla early yesterday morning. The two chatted and drank until 4:30 am when Theerasak took his victim to a hotel close by.
There, he raped her and then called a friend, identified as “Neung”, who came to the hotel and also violated the woman.
The Australian told police that the pair had threatened her with violence. After the rapes she begged them to release her and they finally did.
She then went straight to the police in Patong who viewed CCTV camera footage from the hotel to identify the two men.
