Two men have been arrested in connection with the attack and robbery of an elderly German expat and his Thai wife last week at their home in Phuket.
27-year-old Muyaddidi Dorloh and Sofian Arba, 25, were arrested at two different locations on Tuesday night, according to police.
The pair are accused of breaking into the home of Christian Schrei, 70, last Thursday night armed with a knife and a machete and tying him up with masking tape, slashing his arm and stealing 2,000 baht in cash and 2 ATM cards.
Mr Schrei’s wife was also tied up after she disturbed the burglars.
During questioning, the pair apparently confessed to the crime saying they could only withdraw 3,000 baht from their victim’s bank accounts.
Both men were handed over to Phuket police for further legal proceedings.
