The woman, whose nationality was unknown, was wearing a white shirt and black shorts and was snoring heavily on the sidewalk. The rescuers then woke her up and did an initial health check.
According to local witness and taxi driver Wanchai Petchnil, the woman had been unconscious for some time when he drove by. He also witnessed what he claimed to be a motorcycle taxi driver approaching her and rolling her pockets. The motorcyclist quickly drove off with the woman’s wallet when he saw the taxi driver observing the situation closely. Wanchai then called the police because he did not know how many of her valuables were missing.
The police then began to ask the woman some questions but were barely able to respond, let alone talk, because of her drunkenness. Therefore, she was taken to Pattaya Police Station to sober up, when she regains her wits, she will be interrogated again.
