Indians Robbed on Soi 9 in Pattaya by Motorbike Thieves...
Pattaya One News reports that at 1.30am on the morning of August 29th Pattaya police received reports of a robbery on Beach Road, Soi 9, just behind the Police Station. At the scene officers took a statement from a forty-nine-year old Indian businessman, Mr Hussain Qureshi. He reported that as he and a group of friends left a nearby restaurant they were approached by two Thai women on a motorbike. One of them produced a knife and threatened the men. Between them they were robbed of 7000 baht, $200 & INR 2000.
Officers immediately called for road blocks around the town but the suspects have slipped the net.
Commentary: Apparently the safest place to be in Pattaya is not next to the police station on Soi 9 & Beach road!
