A 38-year-old Laotian man – known among Thai social media as the “Siam Mafia” thug after footage of him allegedly attacking a woman on a Bangkok subway went viral – has been arrested.
Apart from the charge of illegal entry to Thailand and the above assault charge, Weerapan Inthawong, who was arrested at the Sutthisan metro station on Tuesday evening, also faces a separate charge of stealing another woman’s iPhone, said Pathumwan superintendent Pol Col Jarut Sarutayaporn.
Although the social media claimed Weerapan had intimidated and assaulted several people in the Siam Square area, Jarut said a police probe found Weerapan had committed only three attacks. They were; the September 4 subway assault; the August 10 stealing of a female massager’s iPhone; and the August 12 assault of 17-year-old boy at Siam Paragon Mall.
