CHONBURI — Police are searching for two masseuses who allegedly drugged and robbed a German tourist in his hotel room in the resort town of Pattaya.
The 21-year-old German tourist told police he met the two women last night at the Jasmine Villa hotel where he was staying. He said the pair claimed they were staying in the same hotel and offered to give him a massage in his room.
The tourist said the two suspects gave him a bottle of soft drink as they were massaging him after which he quickly fell asleep.
When he woke up, the suspects were gone and he soon realised that his mobile phone and 10,000 baht were missing.
Sangkha Saenchart, manager of the hotel, said the two women checked into the hotel on 27 June with an ID card that belongs to a woman named Wongduan Wongsiri, a 33-year-old native of Ubon Ratchathani province.
The pair checked out this morning, Mr. Sangkha said.
Pol.Lt. Jakkrit Chantakham said the police are trying to establish whether one of the suspects is indeed Ms. Wongduan. The officers are also studying CCTV footage provided by the hotel, he added.
