Three youths arrested for allegedly gang-raping two underaged girls

Three youths have been arrested by Banglamung district police on charges of gang-raping two underaged girls.

The three suspected rapists, one of them identified as Somchai Yana, were escorted by police to the crime scenes, where they allegedly intoxicated the two victims with liquor before raping them and dumping them in Soi 10 of Sukhumvit Road, for re-enactment which took about 20 minutes.

The three suspects allegedly confessed to the crime. The fourth suspect is still on the run.

Pol Maj-Gen Somprasong Yenthuam, commander of Chon Buri provincial police, said that the incident was serious as the victims are underaged. He added that he had instructed police to try to arrest the remaining suspect.

He also warned young women not to venture out at night with strangers.

As for the two victims, police said they were still under the influence of alcohol when they were taken to Banglamung hospital for treatment.
