A 27-year-old Thai man confessed to robbing and raping a Russian tourist on the island of Samui, police said Monday.

rapist_koh_samuiSattawat Choomee admitted upon his arrest he pretended to be a victim of the ongoing flood Friday night and asked the woman for a motorcycle ride home, Koh Samui police said. He later allegedly robbed and assaulted her.

“We found all of the [victim’s] stuff in his possession,” Lt. Col. Sirichai Kertsri, deputy chief of Bophut Police Station, said by telephone. “He also confessed to all charges.”

Police are still waiting for a formal medical examination result from a hospital to confirm that the rape took place before they can file sexual assault charges against the suspect, though Sirichai said he’s confident of Sattawat’s guilt.

“I believe that happened, but we still have to wait for evidence,” the lieutenant colonel said.

Sattawat was arrested shortly after midnight. He’s been charged with robbery.
