Phuket masturbator arrested, fined B1,000

PHUKET: A suspect sought by police for trespassing on the property of a foreign female expat on two separate occasions in December last year and allegedly masturbating at her property and offering her B2,000 to have sex with him, was taken to Cherng Talay Police Station yesterday and charged B500 for each incident.

Komsant Khiawoon, 19, was taken to Cherng Talay Police Station yesterday (Jan 17) and charged on two counts of “performing a disgraceful act in public by undressing himself, exhibiting his undressed person or committing any other act of obscenity,” confirmed Sen Sgt Maj Jirapat Nawathong of the Phuket Tourist Police, who helped push the case to proceed when the officer who received the complaint at Cherng Talay Police Station admitted he was not investigating the case on Jan 2. (See story here).

The woman also told The Phuket News on Jan 2 that Cherng Talay Police “didn’t do anything” after she had filed the complaint.

She then added yesterday, “If not for the Tourist Police forcing Cherng Telay Police to act, and then myself gathering necessary info (by making one phone call to former employer Vichuda Hills/CBRE management) he would have gotten away with it.”

Sen Sgt Maj Jirapat noted today (Jan 18) that the charge is liable to a fine not exceeding B500.

“So for two incidents he was fined B1000,” he said.

Asked if the suspect gave any reason for his behaviour, Sen Sgt Maj Jirapat said, “Back in 2016 the victim had parked her car at the Vichuda Hills housing complex where Komsant was working as a security guard at the time.

“There may have been an argument or misunderstanding that arose. He was also sending her messages that year. But I am not sure why he did what he did,” he said.

He also confirmed that Komsant was not charged for the inappropriate text messages sent to the woman in Sept 2016, as he was a minor at the time.

Komsant is accused of trespassing onto the property of the American woman on Dec 24 and Dec 30 last year.

 "Sexually servicing people (who gross them out)-be it at a short time hotel or a long time marriage is really something people should do...," 

I cannot agree with that statement but will not defame a person who chooses it. 
 I'd like to see the newspaper not able to advertise "male only" for good paying engineering jobs. It does as sexism is not yet viewed unfavorably ...

"Women in societies where they are not making equal monies to men often resort to marrying undesirables who could not afford prostitutes in their own countries" Pretty clear and unequivocal even to a door mouse. 

Christy Sweet | 23 January 2018 - 18:11:57

A poor reader indeed cannot comprehend it is some men acting poorly whom I'm discounting, not any women enduring them.

Jor12 | 23 January 2018 - 12:27:24

Look at any society throughout the world, women do exactly the same thing and have done so since the beginning of time and no doubt will continue. Who cares about what they do? If that's what they want to do, whether by choice or otherwise, then good luck them. It's ingratiating to hear one woman putting down other women.  

Jor12 | 23 January 2018 - 12:04:38

...well there ya go...and "Sounds like..." typical on PN, why bother with facts.

Christy Sweet | 23 January 2018 - 08:51:41

Women in societies where they are not making equal monies to men often resort to marrying undesirables who could not afford prostitutes in their own countries. Others might prefer a part time entertainment gig to maintain some autonomy. A defining feature of feminism is  to not judge or put down any other woman's choice in what she is doing with her own body.  

BenPendejo | 22 January 2018 - 18:59:39

Sounds like one of our favorite commentors is pretty knowledgeable about the types of entertainment performed in the "sexpat" venues...but not surprised, nor concerned.  I can honestly say I've never wasted my time or money on it, and find it amazingly degrading. But I still don't care either way. And as to the public stroker... he deserved to get busted...creepy behavior anywher...

OI'll start quaking in my boots when the third wave of feminism arrives after she gives me a massage and prepares my dinner....ooops!

Jor12 | 22 January 2018 - 12:06:47

So, what is your take on vaginal acrobatics: blowing candles, opening bottles, making bubble gum balloons, shooting ping-pong balls from mentioned opening? Spose that's feminism and "freedom"

Kurt | 22 January 2018 - 10:38:12

Well, with a bouquet roses, a nice bottle of wine, and a dinner invitation a man has more 'chance' than just several times primitively trespassing and show private parts.
Patients, respect are the key words.
We all know that, don't we?

Christy Sweet | 22 January 2018 - 10:05:13

Attention chauvinists!! Better get your blood oxygenated good, and fill up your lungs 'cause the third wave of feminism is more like a tsunami-and it's global.  Women are the majority and will not act as cowed minority anymore. 
This young man (boy, even) thought his actions would go unpunished-but he whacked the wrong mole. Now he's outed as perverted, hopefully it will end his dalli...

DeKaaskopp | 22 January 2018 - 09:54:54

Why does he need a mental check up?Instead of showing up with a bouquet of roses in his hand he decided to show up with his his hand to impress her.Ok,it wasn't appreciated.Maybe he should have brought the newest "Ms"magazine!

..." Boys will be boys'..???    Yes, and..  ?
Defending all the time what is wrong by law and society thinking is strange.

I asked my sons (half thai) about it, they were laughing and commented that the particular man was not good in his head and should have a mental check up.

But yes, I am sure things like this will still happen here when I am gone.
No doubt about that

Christy Sweet | 20 January 2018 - 10:33:56

Excusing this type of predatory and intrusive behavior as \"boys will be boys..\"  is a great example of the type of sexpat infesting Thailand, clinging onto the chauvinist values whilst taking advantage of sexist mores. 

Jor12 | 18 January 2018 - 21:40:27

Boys will be boys, and still will be when you are gone.

Kurt | 18 January 2018 - 20:19:58

Trespassing private property
Indecent behavior/proposing
Masturbating in public
And now the laugh starts:....Just 1000 thb fine only
But , well, we are in Thailand
Showing a gun, but also your private parts seems to be not a serious matter
How about a hospital ride for the guy in order to have a mental check up?
Is this person forbidden to go again in the vicinity of that particular propert...
