Ildae Valeshev, a Russian tourist arrested for allegedly molesting a Thai woman in Pattaya on 18 April, 2014.

CHONBURI — A Russian tourist has been arrested for allegedly molesting a Thai woman in Pattaya's famous nightlife district.

The police reportedly made the arrest at around 4:30 a.m. in the middle of Walking Street. The man was identified as Mr. Ildae Valeshev, 26, and was heavily intoxicated at the time of the arrest.

A 35-year-old Thai woman told the police she was taking her 11-year-old daughter for a walk on Walking Street when they encountered Mr. Valeshev and his friends. 

According to the woman, Mr. Valeshev suddenly groped her breasts in front of her daughter, causing her much shock and embarrassment. She reportedly hit the man once, but Mr. Valeshev attempted to touch her again, so the woman decided to kick him and force him to apologise to her. 


When Mr. Valeshev refused to apologise, the woman said, she shouted for help and called the police to arrest him.
