Concert Security Violate Teenager During Body Search

Video footage has started circulating online over the past 24h hours that shows a security guard conducting a body search on a teenage concertgoer that could be considered sexual assault.

The incident happened in September 2014 at a True Move H sponsored concert by Korean pop band EXO as the young woman, most likely in her late teens, was being searched before entering the concert at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani.

A female guard approached to conduct the search and at one point touched the woman’s breasts. The woman asks the guard was she being searched in an obscene way that could be considered sexual assault. The guard replies, “No, I’m just looking for camera”, whilst continuing to poke and touch the woman’s breasts. The guard then touched her crotch in an inappropriate manner making the girl cry out at her behavior.

A reporter from the Daily News paid a visit to Pak Kret police station, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Impact Arena, and spoke to Pol.Lt.Col. Pitthaya Petcharat who said when conducting a search, the guards will do it in public. They are only allowed to do a bag search and an external body search. He added that security have NO rights to put their hands under people’s clothes or skirt – even thought the guards are female – and this type of conduct is way out of line. People who attend concerts are just normal people, they aren’t criminals or thieves.

Police will now contact concert organisers and relevant companies and ask them to be more careful when doing their jobs.
