3 Myanmar workers accused of sexual assault on US woman

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Three Myanmar Men Arrested for Sexually Assaulting American Woman in Chiang Mai
By Editor on Apr 27, 2018
CHIANG MAI – Three Myanmar construction workers have been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting an American woman in Chiang Mai’s Doi Saket District.

The arrest occurred on April 27th following a report of an American woman being sexually assault at Ban Pa Sao, San Pu Loei, Doi Saket.

According to CityNews the victim and her male friend rented a motorcycle and while traveling to Doi Saket, stopped at a local shop owned by their mutual friend for the night. They were having drinks when three men joined the circle.

The men were later identified as Dum, 22, Dang, 22, and Noi, 37, all Myanmar nationals.

At around 10pm, the victim went to urinate in the bushes on the side of the road about 10 metres away from the shop, when the assault occurred. All three men allegedly took turns in raping the young American woman.

After a report was made to police, the three men were identified and arrested. The three suspects told police that it was consensual sex.
They have been charged with gang rape, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and a 30,000 baht to 40,000 baht fine. The men were denied bail.

Police are now waiting for a medical examination before pursuing further prosecution.

Does anyone feel that 20 years isn't a lot for gang raping someone?! So horrific, poor woman

CHIANG MAI — Three Burmese men [pictured seated] were arrested Friday for the alleged rape of an American tourist in Chiang Mai’s Doi Saket district.

Police arrested the construction workers, identified only as Dam, Daeng and Noi, for allegedly gang-raping an American tourist Thursday night.

The tourist, traveling in Chiang Mai with her boyfriend, told police she and her boyfriend were drinking by a grocery store with the three men before she excused herself to the restroom. She said the men followed her and subsequently raped her.

The store owner told police the woman and her boyfriend arrived Thursday night to buy alcohol and drinks. The couple allegedly met the Burmese men at the store.

The woman on Friday was in hospital for a checkup, according to Lt. Col. Suriyan Chansai of Doi Saket Police.

This report says that the third and final sexual assault was witnessed by the victim's friend, but he/she must have also been seriously drunk, not to have wondered or worried what was happening when at first 3 [drunk] guys got up from the table and followed the woman into the bushes.
However, the three suspects have been identified, so now it's up to Thai justice.

27 April 2018
- On the previous day, the victim and her friend [had] rented a motorcycle and while travelling to Doi Saket, stopped at a local shop owned by their mutual friend for the night. They were having a drink when three men joined the circle. The men were later identified as Dum, 22, Dang, 22, and Noi, 37, all Burmese nationals.

At around 10pm, the victim went to urinate in the bushes on the side of the road about 10 metres away from the shop, when the assault occured. All three men allegedly took turns in raping the victim.

After her friend began to wonder where she was, she wen’t (sic) after her and saw Dum in the act of sexually assaulting her friend, who fled instantly once he was caught. The other two had already left the scene.
After a report was made to police, the three men were identified and arrested.
