Chinese woman arrested in Pattaya over alleged theft
Pattaya police have arrested a Chinese woman for allegedly stealing cash and a smartphone from a Hong Kong tourist in his Pattaya hotel room.
Pattaya police chief Pol Colonel Apichai Krobphet said Xue Zhi, 25, was arrested late on Monday night, shortly after the tourist, Keung Fuk Leu, 48, alerted the Pattaya police station of the theft.
The Hong Kong man said he met the Xue via the WeChat application. He invited her for a drink and took her back to his hotel room to have sex. He said he woke up to find that his cash and iPhone had disappeared.
Police found Bt13,000 in cash and an iPhone 6s with Xue. She said she stole them because the man refused to pay her after sex.
