Police officers are on the lookout for a reportedly homeless man who allegedly sexually assaulted a Canadian woman near Lumpini Park in Bangkok’s Pathumwan district on May 27, Deputy Metropolitan Police chief Pol Maj-General Piya Tawichai said on Sunday.

“We checked the CCTV footage and found that at around 1.18pm on Thursday, the victim -- a social media streamer -- was broadcasting her live video on Wireless Road near Gate 1 of One Bangkok Building, when she was sexually assaulted by a man,” he said.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the assailant was homeless, and we are tracking him down to bring him in for questioning.

“The victim has yet to file a complaint with the police, but we will contact her and ask her to come in and give a statement,” added Piya.
