Crime Suppression Division (CSD) police arrested Honchao Sae Oun, 62, at a house in Thai Muang district on Friday (Aug 9), said Col Neti Wongkulap, chief of CSD sub-division 5, on Saturday (Aug 10).

Officers said Mr Honchao was living in Muang district of Yala in December 2004 when he lured a five-year-old girl to his house, where he molested her. The girl later told her parents what had happened, and they filed a complaint with local police. 

Yala provincial court approved a warrant for the arrest of the suspect on charges of indecent assault, physical assault and depriving a girl aged under 15 of parental care. The suspect subsequently fled and the case went cold.

When CSD officers resumed efforts to locate the suspect, they found that he had been in hiding in his home province of Phang Nga.

Mr Honchao confessed to all charges, they said. He was handed over to Yala police for further legal proceedings.
