Thai man who raped South African English teacher arrested
A second person has been arrested in the rape of a 35 year old South African English teacher in Kamphaeng Phet.
Twenty nine year old Aphisit Sahachart was found hiding in accommodation for construction workers in Ban Bung, Chonburi. A member of the public had reported he was there after seeing there was a warrant for him on the news.
Aphisit admitted he had raped the white skinned woman. He said that he lived near where she stayed and had often seen her before. He said he liked the look of her and when he saw her walking alone he picked her up.
Thaivisa reported earlier in the week that the victim was on her way to a bus station. She accepted the lift and sat in the middle of two men – Aphisit was on the back of the bike.
The driver of the bike – Somsak Suradech, 24, was arrested earlier in the week and has also admitted involvement.
The teacher works at a secondary school in the Pran Kratai district of Kamphaeng Phet.
The rape occurred at 10pm on the 9th of December.
