Pattaya, the 29th of March 2010 [PDN]: At approximately 00:00am Monday, police Major Kriengkrai Buakla (Pattaya Police Investigator) was notified of a sexual assault at the Antina Thai Massage Shop in Pattaya’s infamous Walking Street. Following the report a team of police were dispatched to the business to investigate the matter further.
Police, arriving at the scene, were confronted by Miss Suwimon (last name withheld)  who explained that she had been performing a massage on a Qatari national, Mr. Mr. Abdul Rahman Jassim M Y Sorour  when he became sexually aroused and proceeded to indecently assault her. Mr. Sorour was subsequently detained at the scene by the staff from the massage parlour. Officers arrested Mr. Sorour before taking him to the Pattaya Police Station along with Miss Suwimon for further questioning.
At the station Miss Suwimon further revealed that Mr. Sorour had indecently touched her breast and pulled her to the bed after he had become sexually aroused by her massage. Resisting Mr. Sorour’s attempts Miss Suwimon revealed she was able to free herself from his grasp, running for help from the other staff members present in the shop.
Mr. Sorour proceeded to apologise profusely to Miss Suwimon, explaining that he was aware his actions were inappropriate whilst continuing to profess his regret for the incident, offering to pay the victim an amount of money in compensation. Miss Suwimon agreed, requesting he pay her 30,000 baht in order to avoid any litigation in the serious matter, which he payed accordingly.
Police Major Buakla filed a report on the incident before warning Mr. Sorour about his actions and the need to acknowledge and respect the Thai law in the future. Mr. Sorour was then released without any charges being laid.
