In the early hours of Saturday a 46 year old Australian Teacher reported a drugging and robbery which occurred following an encounter with two Thai women outside of a South Pattaya shopping mall.
Mr. M. S. reported to Pattaya Police that he was walking past the Avenue Shopping Complex on Pattaya Second Road when he met the two women who suggested they accompany him to his hotel room. Mr. S. accepted the offer but first invited the two women to a nearby Pizza Shop where they ate and drank beer.
During the meal, Mr. S. left the table and used the toilet. It is during this time that he suspects his beer was laced with sleeping medication. He began to feel drowsy and was assisted to a motorbike taxi who took all three people to his hotel in the Naklua area.
When inside the room Mr. S. believes he lost consciousness and when he woke-up he found the women had gone along with 550 Euros from his wallet. His room had been ransacked and the two women left a single 20 Baht note next to his bed.
Police will now attempt to locate and arrest the two suspects who remain at-large for now.
