Boonsom told police that he was driving from Pattaya to Sri Racha to get to the hospital when he was approached by an unidentified woman who tried to befriend him. She asked to borrow his phone, but it was dead, so she told him she would charge it for him, Boonsom said.

However, he fell asleep at a roadside pavilion while waiting and awoke to shockingly find himself in a different location, with his belongings missing, including a phone, 1,500 baht cash, and a motorbike key, according to Boonsom’s testimony. He then pleaded with a pedestrian to call the police for him.

Sri Racha police initially contacted the hospital to transport the victim to treatment, and would later review CCTV footage to identify the culprit and track how the victim was moved.
