Two ladyboys have been arrested on suspicion of stealing an Australian tourist’s wallet.
Bruce McCown, 34, was approached by the culprits in the early hours of Thursday morning. They began hugging Mr. McCown, probably as a distraction technique, as the other one robbed him of his wallet.
The pair fled before the victim realised what had happened. His wallet contained 16,000 baht.
He proceeded to alert tourist police who were nearby. They found the pair shortly afterwards and were taken to Pattaya police station for questioning, where they confessed.
They have been identified as Chaiwat Sriwanit, 24, and Thanatcha Saengsan, 21.
