Ban Bueng district, Chonburi —
A man wearing a food delivery jacket allegedly robbed 3.4 million baht from a woman in Chonburi around 2:30 P.M. yesterday, September 20th.
The victim was a staff member named Ms. Prapaporn Boonmeesanom (29). She went to report a robbery to Ban Bueng police yesterday, saying she was robbed for over 3.4 million baht by an unidentified man behind the Siam Commercial Bank on Soi Rat Uthit in the Ban Bueng subdistrict of Ban Bueng district, Chonburi.
The victim told The Pattaya News that she went to the bank with a driver, Mr. Kritchaphat Surakul (24), to withdraw money to pay other workers.
After Prapaporn and a driver got into their white van and were about to leave with a bag of money, the suspect, who was wearing a green food delivery jacket, appeared and opened the driver’s door and began punching the driver, accusing him of messing with his wife, according to the victim.
Ms. Prapaporn said the two fought briefly before her driver ran away after the suspect yelled that he had a gun. The suspect then took the bag of money and sped away on a grey motorbike without a license plate.
Prapaporn told the Pattaya News she was still in shock from the terrifying experience.
Pol. Col. Thanawut Chongjira, deputy commander of the Chonburi provincial police station, said he would look closely into this case, as there were too many unanswered questions.
Initially, he had ordered his subordinates to review CCTV cameras around the crime scene to track down the suspect.
