Britisth Backpacker Rapists Arrested In Kanchanaburi

In the past 24 hours both Thai and English media are reporting the story of an alleged rape of a 19-year-old British backpacker in Kanchanaburi early Tuesday morning.

The reports range from she was abducted by a gang of bikers to she accepted a lift from two teenagers on a bike. The international media have sensationalised the headlines and story to the point of ridiculous as the details of the incident are sketchy at best.

It would seem the unnamed backpacker ate and drank at a popular restaurant on Monday night with a group of other tourists and went outside alone around 1.30am.

Thai media report at this point she accepted a lift from the boys thinking she’d be taken back to her hotel. UK tabloids report the young Brit was abducted and gang-raped by bikers.

Commissioner of the Provincial Police Bureau 7, Pol Lt-Gen Werapong Chuenpagdee, held a press conference on Thursday but didn’t confirm the rape until Friday when it was reported police had tracked down the two teenagers who the backpacker rode off with using CCTV footage. The pair were arrested shortly after and confessed to the rape.

Kanchanaburi police didn’t release any further info citing damaging tourism as the reason for the media blackout.

The young female backpacker has now returned to the UK. Again, it isn’t clear if this was because of the alleged incident or her trip had come to an end as planned.
