Police in the seaside town of Hua Hin are hunting a thief who abducted an 18 year old woman from a foreigner’s house in the Khao Phitak area of Hua Hin on Tuesday.
He looked like he was going to rape the girl but finally let her go and made off with her mother’s motorbike.
The drama began at the house when the mother named only as “A” and her daughter “B”, employees of a private cleaning service, arrived to tidy up.
Lying in wait in the house was a man who threatened them with a short knife.
He then tied the mother to the banisters and made off with her 18 year old daughter who was forced to drive her mother’s Honda Wave.
The mother managed to free herself from the bindings some time after and alerted a passing police motorcycle patrol.
A large police search began.
Three hours later the abducted woman phoned from a Car Care center to say that she had been freed unharmed.
She told police that she had been taken down various roads and sois in the neighborhood with the knife in her back before her abductor decided to let her go and rode off on the bike in the direction of Bon Kai.
She was terrified but not physically hurt.
Police studied CCTV at the Car Care firm and discovered that the man was dark skinned in a short sleeved top with a height of about 160 cms.
He was wearing a white helmet on the black Honda Wave.
An urgent hunt is on for the man who police described as potentially dangerous.
The identity of the foreign owner of the house was not reported in the Sanook story. – Sanook
