Gunman Robs Russian At Her Chonburi Home

(2 April) A Russian woman in Chonburi province said she was robbed at gunpoint in her home this morning.

The robbery reportedly occurred at around 02.30 at a house in Banglamung district. Ms. Tatiana Ostapchuk, 35, told police she was working in her room and had left the front door unlocked.

A Thai male armed with a handgun later entered the house and forced her to show him where she kept her money, according to Ms. Tatiana. 

The Russian said the man kept his pistol pointed at her while he ransacked her bedroom, reportedly taking one iPad, before taking her to the living room where he continued to search through Ms. Tatiana's belongings. The suspect allegedly took Ms. Tatiana's camera and her iPhone, before running to a vehicle he had parked in front of her house and speeding away.


The suspect is described as a lean man with hollow cheeks, and wearing a black shirt. 

Police said they are inspecting CCTVs in the vicinity to identify and locate the perpetrator.
