At the incident scene, Mr. Pravin Suresh Sutrave, a 43-year-old Indian businessman, was reportedly in shock and told the police that he was roaming around when two transgender individuals approached him and his friend, trying to seduce him and hugging him.

Initially, Pattaya police came to investigate the crime scene and requested security camera footage nearby to track down the suspects. They affirmed to catch the suspects as soon as possible to restore the Pattaya tourism image.  

TPN notes that the suspects in the two prior recent theft incidents, also described as two transgender individuals, have yet to be arrested. It is unclear if the same parties are responsible.
