Pattaya police are hunting two snatch thieves who ripped two gold necklaces from a Russian woman’s neck late Sunday night.
Pankratova Elena, 25, told police she was attending to her child on Soi Wat Bunkanjanaram when a bike approached and the pillion passenger grabbed the gold chains before speeding off.
The necklaces were estimated to be worth around 75,000 baht.
Acting superintendent Thanapong Pothi told reporters the men were riding a black motorbike and likely repeat offenders.
Investigators were hoping to identify the suspects from CCTV in the areas and would seek eyewitnesses to the robbery.
