A 34 year old man was accused of abducting an 11 year old girl at knife-point and then taking her to a Motel where he sexually assaulted her twice before taking her back to her home in Jomtien.
Just before 1am on Wednesday a 44 year old mother and her 11 year old daughter made their way to Pattaya Police Station to report the incident. The Mother explained that earlier in the night just before 7pm, her daughter left the family home at the Royal Park Village on the Sukhumvit Road in Jomtien to visit a friend at the Tepprasit Road Government Condominium located close-by.
At the front of the village the girl was looking for a motorbike taxi and seconds later a man wearing a motorbike taxi jacket, who was later found not to be a genuine taxi driver, pulled up beside the girl and offered to take her to see her friend. He then told the girl, upon their arrival, that he would wait outside for her and take her back home.
An hour later the girl emerged from the Condominium and the pair were preparing to leave when the taxi driver, later named as Khun Oy aged 34, told the girl to sit in front of him on the bike as he was having some problems with the back tyre of the bike. She complied and was then taken, against her will and at knife-point to the Khopia 94 Motel in South Pattaya. When inside one of the rooms she was ordered to remove her clothing and Khun Oy is alleged to have conducted a sexual assault on the 11 year old girl twice.

An 18-year-old girl yesterday received a guilty verdict and a suspended jail term for reckless driving that was blamed for the deaths of nine people.
Her criminal conviction will likely have an impact on the Bt120 million worth of compensation lawsuits filed by victims or their relatives at the Civil Court.
At the time of the fatal accident on Bangkok’s tollway in late 2010, she was an under-aged driver and was clearly travelling at a speed beyond legal limits.
The case caught the public attention because the accident killed many van passengers, but the girl was photographed using her mobile phone, apparently calmly, shortly after the fatal accident.
Among the victims were Dr Sastra Chaotiang and Kiattimant Rodaree, who had just graduated from Chulalongkorn University’s faculty of engineering with first-class honours and secured a job at the National Nanotechnology Centre.
