After questioning Ms. Kewalin, police were made aware that Ms. Kewalin and Mr. Paul were on their way back to their room after they went to entertain themselves at Walking Street. As they were walking a pick-up truck approached and stopped in front of them. 2 men then came down from the car and told them to give them all their possessions, they were threatening the couple with a long knife. The couple then decided to give them all they had, including cash money and important documents. As soon as the robbers had escaped, the couple then ran to the nearest security guard to help them.

Robberies are really gaining pace in thai... this creates a bad impression of a great country. I just hope that the police catch the criminals

So much for Pattaya being safe like Disneyland.


Doesn't seem like these couple were showing off jewelry or anything, in face he may have been targeted because he was a foreigner.


Doesn't say exactly where this alley was, but maybe it was away from the 'touristy' areas.

No but the article says................ they were walking back to their room in an isolated alley. Would you really walk in an Isolated alley late at night in any country? I am pretty sure I wouldnt, especially here where you can get the transport for peanuts
