BURIRAM — A video shared on social media as a "cat fight" between teen girls led to the arrest of a 21-year-old woman suspected of running an underage prostitution ring, police said Monday.
After video surfaced of a woman and several accomplices beating a girl later identified as a 14-year-old student in Buriram province, her family told police the beating came from those forcing her into prostitution. Local police chief Col. Somchai Sophonpanyaporn identified the alleged ringleader only as Sawitri, 21.
Somchai said Sawitri and seven underage suspects were arrested Thursday, shortly after the video was posted to social media. The incident occurred March 27.
