An Indian man was arrested in Ao Nang in Krabi after he allegedly stole a mobile phone from a Thai woman.
The Krabi Provincial Police told the Phuket Express that the incident took place earlier this week. The Indian man came to talk with a Thai woman who he met at a restaurant in Ao Nang. He allegedly took the woman’s mobile phone, an iPhone 8 Plus.
The woman, whose name was withheld by relevant law enforcement, filed a report to the Ao Nang Police and police tracked down the suspect from CCTV footage at the restaurant before an arrest warrant from the Krabi Provincial Court was issued for the Indian suspect.
The Indian man was arrested with the stolen mobile phone, said police. He was taken to the Ao Nang Police Station to face charges of theft by night.
The Phuket Express noted the name of those involved, including the suspect, were not given by police.
