Lt Suporn Muangkhai from Thalang Police received a call at 6am from staff at Point Yamu where it was said that a man had broken into a resort room and attacked a female Chinese tourist after she woke up to find him next to the bed.

Lt Suporn said, “We arrived at the resort where Canadian man, 27-year-old Ji Duo Wu and his girlfriend Bolin Lou, 27, were waiting for us. Miss Lou alleged she had been attacked by an unknown man. She had suffered a minor injury to her neck.

“We checked their villa where the incident is alleged to have happened but found no sign of a break in and no items had been stolen. However, on the balcony we did find loose dirt on the floor and on a sunbed,” he said.

He continued, “Ms Luo told us that they had checked in to the resort yesterday evening (May 26) and locked the door before they went out for dinner. She said that after dinner, while they were sleeping, she felt a hand on her neck. She said the suspect tried to strangle her so she called for help which woke up Mr Wu. The suspect then fled via the balcony.

“We believe that the suspect entered the room to rob the couple, but she woke up so he attacked her or attempted to rape her. We cannot say at this time what exactly happened, however, we are questioning staff and guests to see if they noticed anything or saw anyone coming or going from the area,” he added.

Deputy Superintendent Lt Col Amnoy Kraiwuttianan and his team from Thalang Police are currently investigating the incident and checking CCTV footage from the area.

Point Yamu General Manager Andy Kunz declined to comment on the incident when contacted by The Phuket News
