As they drove home past the At Mind Premier Suites Hotel in Central Pattaya around 2pm yesterday a thief in white shirt, jeans and full face helmet grabbed Praphaporn’s bag.

The tug caused both victims to come off their bike and suffer road rash.

Praphaporn said that the bag contained two iPhones, a half baht weight gold ring (worth about 10,000 baht) and a further 10,000 baht in cash.

Police and medics were soon on the scene but the thief had got clean away.

However, Thai Rath reported that the police have a clear CCTV image of the incident and are hunting for the thief who is aged about 20 – 25.

Praphaporn said the couple had been out feeding some soi dogs and were on their way back when the thief struck.
