Russian Exchange Booth Robbery Suspect Arrested At Swampy

A Russian man suspected of robbing a Jomtien currency exchange booth of almost 1 million baht and seriously assaulting a female member of staff was arrested on Saturday evening at Suvarnabhumi Airport.

32-year-old Nikolay Rybalov was apprehended by airport police and security as he was waiting to board a Qatar Airways flight to Moscow via Doha.

Detectives from Chonburi believe Rybalov is the man caught on camera viciously beating Sunee Kaewyoo, 30, early Saturday morning at the currency exchange booth on Sukhumvit Road opposite Ambasador Jomtien Hotel where she worked.

Ms Kaewyoo was hospitalised after the tattooed robber punched her in the face ten times before making off on a rented motorbike with a bag containing almost 1 million baht in cash.

The bike was found a short time later parked at a house in the Dusit Lake housing estate but the suspect had already fled the area by car.

Investigators notified immigration and tourist police which led to Rybalov’s arrest this evening.

Along with the recovered cash found on his person, the Russian is being transferred back to Chonburi for questioning.
