A 40-year-old man has been arrested after allegedly sexually harassing a 12-year-old girl in the Nongprue community earlier this week (December 8).

Nongprue Police were notified of the incident in Pong Sub-district. She and “Snelle Jelle” our raging reporter on the scene found Kongdet Chakamthorn, 49, and his daughter, a 12-year-old girl. (The girl’s name was withheld because she was a minor).

Kongdet had personally detained the suspect, who was reported in the press as Fai, 40, and carried out a “civilian arrest” before the Nongprue police arrived. Fai also reportedly used a knife to threaten police during his arrest.

However, Fai was eventually disarmed and taken to a local police station. No one was injured in the arrest.

Kongdet told Nongprue police: “Fai broke into my house, entered my daughter’s room and started hugging my daughter. She screamed and grabbed my attention before I caught Fai in the act, stopped him and called the police.”

Kongdet and nearby neighbours told a local reporter that Fai has a problem with anger management and an extremely erratic mood. Kongdet and his neighbours stated that this was not the first problem with Fai and that they wanted him permanently banned from the village.

At the time of going to press, Fai remained in custody and faced multiple charges, including sexual harassment of a minor, trespassing and assault against a law enforcement officer. Kongdet thanked the police for their response to the incident, with the police also acknowledging Kongdet for successfully detaining the suspect.
