Man arrested after attempting to rape 4-year-old girl in Tha Sala

A man has been arrested after he was caught attempting to rape a 4-year-old girl in Tha Sala yesterday, Aug. 21.

The incident involved a 70-year-old homeless man named only as Mr. Sayan who was caught molesting the girl outside of a dormitory building in the Ban Phae area of Tha Sala.

The man is said to have approached the child, talking to her before lifting up her dress, taking off her underwear and then attempting to digitally penetrate her. He was also reported to have removed his pants. Locals intercepted him before he could rape the girl, tackling him to the ground and detaining him until police could arrive.

The man himself claims that he saw the child scratched by a cat and was attempting to check on her well being. While doing so, he admitted to taking off his pants but only because he had accidentally pissed himself – you can’t make this stuff up.

There’s also some suggestion that he may have been filming at the time as well. CCTV footage of the incident exists but Chiang Mai One has chosen not to share any of it, something that can’t be said for certain Thai language news sites.

Mr. Sayan has been charged by Mae Ping Police with creating child pornography with a child under the age of 13 and depriving a child for the purposes of obscenity. Further charges may be forthcoming as police were awaiting on the results of a rape examination from Rajavej Hospital.
