A 43-year-old man has been arrested after allegedly forcing his 16-year-old daughter to use drugs before sexually abusing her in Chonburi.
The president of the Pavena Foundation for Children and women in Bangkok, Mrs. Pavena Hongsakul, went to the Ko Chan Police Station with Mrs. A (age not given) and Ms B, 16 (Their real names have been withheld by police) earlier this month. The case, however, was released to the press today, November 11th, 2021 following the arrest of the suspect after a ten-day manhunt.
Ms. B (Mrs A’s daughter) told police on October 31st her real father, Mr. Adisak Rakwong, 43, allegedly forced her to eat two pills of methamphetamine (commonly called yabba in Thailand). He then proceeded to commit sexual abuse to her. Ms. B panicked before she ran to her grandparents which is about three kilometers away.
Ko Chan Police requested an arrest warrant from the Chonburi Provincial Court but Mr. Adisak had fled his home and gone missing.
Mrs. Pavena told the associated Thai press “The victim’s parents were separated since the girl was three years old. She lives in Bangkok with her mother. She visited her grandparents in Chonburi sometimes.”
“The suspect had allegedly done this to the victim before in Bangkok, but Ms. B had kept silent until this most recent incident,” Pavena added.
“Adisak was finally arrested yesterday, November 10th, in Minburi, Bangkok. He is facing multiple legal charges relating to the alleged sexual abuse of a relative who is a minor.
Ko Chan Police stated to the press that Mr. Adisak is denying all charges. He claimed that he would never hurt his daughter and that the allegations are false. It was not immediately clear, however, why he fled following the alleged incident.
Ko Chan police stated that Adisak remained in custody pending a full investigation that would likely lead to court. It was unknown if Mr. Adisak had already obtained the assistance of a lawyer.
Meanwhile a similar incident in Chonburi yesterday:
A 50-year-old man has been arrested at a wood factory for the alleged sexual abuse of a 9-year-old girl in Banglamung.
