Police arrested three owners, Paitoon Angkaprechased, Suchaya Tammachai and Atchara Kutkaew along with the women providing services to men. The women arrested were of both Thai and foreign nationality, including a number of illegal immigrants.

The bar has now been closed and those arrested are awaiting prosecution.
