CHONBURI — A man was arrested Sunday and accused of impersonating a cop to sexually assault two teen girls he pretended to take in for drug testing.

The 16- and 17-year-old girls said they were followed by Prasarn Srihoon Saturday evening when they left their Chonburi province school on a motorbike.

Prasarn approached on his motorcycle and told them to stop, saying he wanted to bring one of them to a nearby police box for drug testing. The girls said he touched their genitals as he searched them.

“He told police he was drunk,” Col. Phobphol Jakkaphak of Si Racha police said Monday.

Phobphol said Prasarn, who is a truck driver, fled after the girls cried for help. The pair also had a voice recording of the 46 year old trying to lead one away to the police box.

Police tracked Prasarn from security camera footage to his home late Sunday night where they arrested him.

Prasarn was charged with performing an indecent act on a child, detaining someone against their will and impersonating an official.
