Two Ugandan Women Arrested

Two Ugandan women were arrested in Pattaya last night for allegedly stealing money from a Canadian tourist during a massage session. The tourist, identified only as Mr. Khalid, filed a complaint with Banglamung Police Station on June 10, 2024. He reported that after drinking on Walking Street in South Pattaya, he invited the two women to his hotel room on Pattaya-Naklua Road for drinks and a massage, paying each of them 2,000 baht. Mr. Khalid fell asleep during the massage and woke up to find over 90,000 baht missing from his safe.

Suspecting the two women, who had left by the time he awoke, Mr. Khalid immediately reported the incident to the Banglamung Police Station. To protect Pattaya’s tourism reputation, Banglamung police, in cooperation with Pattaya police and immigration officials, tracked down the women. On June 17 at around 6:25 PM, authorities, armed with arrest warrants, apprehended the women at an undisclosed hotel in the Khao Phra Tamnak area. The police seized clothing and afro wigs the suspects allegedly wore during the crime before taking them to Pattaya Police Station to face charges of nighttime theft.

The suspects, identified by Pattaya police as Mrs. Mariam Nakaiza, 38, and Mrs. Shibah Inemababazi, 28, both from Uganda, initially denied the allegations. They claimed they were hired solely for a massage and left after Mr. Khalid, who was intoxicated, fell asleep.
