Police in Pattaya,Thailand have arrested a British man in connection with the death of a woman who fell from the fifth floor of a condominium.
The British man was arrested at a bar in the city on Sunday. Police say he was the last person to see the victim alive, having spent time with her in the moments before her death.
In the early hours of Saturday morning, police were called to Cosy Beach View Condominium in Pratumnak after a security guard found naked body of 26-year-old Wannipha Chanhuathon.
The security guard Kriangsak, 23, said he was at the front gate when he heard a suspicious noise of something hitting the ground.
He made the grisly discovery at 5am and called the authorities. The woman was still alive but soon died and was covered by a white sheet after foundation medics arrived at the scene and were unsuccessful in CPR efforts to revive her.
The suspect said that he rented the room in question at Cosy Beach View Condominium.
He said he had taken a bar girl back for sex in the room – they continued their sex on the balcony when she fell.
He felt distraught and left the scene and went to stay in a resort and spa in Bang Lamung Soi 7, said Thai media.
The police operation took 20 hours until the arrest was made. According to his passport the suspect is 25.
