The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) yesterday arrested a British convict, who was fleeing a 14-month jail sentence for sexually molesting minors in England and was laying low in Pattaya City.

After receiving a request from the British Embassy to hunt down Kevin Victor Rider, 49, the DSI found the man in a house in Bang Lamung district’s Tambon Pong.

DSI’s chief of operations in the Eastern region, Pravit Chaibuadaeng, said Rider had initially tried to enter Thailand via Suvarnabhumi Airport, but had been blocked entry due to his criminal record.
