On 21st November, Phubase Wutthichitkul, 34, from Udon Thani, was arrested for rape, possession of firearms without permit, possession of firearms and a knife in public, physically harming a person, child abduction for perverted reasons and holding them against their will.

In January 2012, Phubase allegedly used physical strength to attack a girl at the Mae Rim Plaza. He also threatened her with a gun and when her brother came to the rescue, he attacked him with a knife, cutting his throat.

He then bundled the girl into his car, took her to his rented house and raped her. Somehow the victim managed to escape after a while and went to the police. When police went to his house, Phubase had left and has been on the run ever since.

The brother and the girl recovered from their injuries.

Through years of investigative work, and liaising with different police departments, it was discovered that Phubase had moved to Uttaradit, where the arrest was made. He has admitted to his crime and will be prosecuted.
