Pattaya —

A 41-year-old Chinese man was held captive in Pattaya and got his finger chopped off allegedly by a ransom gang who demanded 30 million baht, according to Pattaya police.

The victim’s Thai girlfriend, Ms. Alisara Supasiribundit, 20, contacted Pattaya police to find her missing Chinese boyfriend, Mr. Ren Haibd, today, October 31st, after her boyfriend suddenly vanished at midnight yesterday, October 30th.

Ren disappeared along with his black Toyota Fortuner, according to his girlfriend.

Then this morning, Ren’s younger brother contacted Alisara, saying his Chinese brother was kidnapped and showed a video clip of him being tied up with duct tape over his eyes and his finger on the left hand getting cut off and bleeding heavily. The footage was sent to Ren’s brother via Telegram with a ransom demand of 30 million baht in exchange for Ren’s freedom.

Alisara and Ren’s brother transferred 50,000 baht three times to the suspect/suspects through a Crytocurrency exchange totaling 150,000 baht.

Police Region 2, Chonburi police, and Pattaya tourist police searched the house Number 51/60 in the Nongprue subdistrict of Banglamung, Chonburi, today and rescued Ren.
