Phuket City Police are searching for a man wanted for sexually harassing restaurant staff in Phuket Town after he exposed himself and masturbated in front of them four times in three days.
“We have launched a search for him, but we have yet to find him. Our officers have been alerted to the car’s licence plate number and have been searching areas around night entertainment venues,” Phuket City Police Superintendent Sermphan Sirikong said.
“We have caught a few people, parked along the bypass road, who were masturbating in their vehicles, but none of them were the man we are looking for,” he added. The news follows a restaurant owner in Phuket Town making a public appeal for people to beware of a man who has repeatedly exposed himself in front of her Burmese staff and masturbated in front of them.
“One of those times, he walked up to one of my staff members, pulled out his ‘thing’ and started masturbating right in front of her. When the staff member saw what he was doing and screamed, he ran back to his car and sped off,” she explained. Staff at the restaurant described the masturbator as a well-dressed, good-looking Thai man in his 30s, driving a car fitted with Bangkok licence plates.
