He was arrested near the Bangla Police Box on the Taweewong Road in Patong and was taken to the Patong Police Station to face charges of night theft.

The arrest came after on Saturday (January 6th) in the early morning when a Mongolian woman, whose name was withheld, filed a report to the Patong Police. She told police that her bag with the iPhone, 10,000 Baht in cash, and a room key was stolen. She had placed the bag on a sofa inside an unidentified night club on the Bangla Road.
