Police received a call in the early hours of Sunday morning that a foreign man was molesting a young boy in a car parked on Soi 4 off Pratamnak Hill. Officers were sent to investigate and found the Toyota Vios parked in a dark area of the street. Inside, on the back seat was Mr. Norman Wallis in the act of seducing a young 13 year old boy. Police confronted Wallis aged 79 from England and arrested him. Both he and the boy were taken back to the police station for questioning. According to Wallis, he paid 700 baht to the boy as requested when they met at a local shopping mall. He further stated that he was not aware that having sex with an underage person was illegal in Thailand. Wallis, who was to fly back to the UK shortly, will have to cancel his flight as he was charged and sent for legal proceedings. The case continues.
