58-year-old Mamady Keita, a ruby dealer working in Bangkok Silom district by the nickname of “Michael”, is accused of luring a 17-year old girl into a hotel within the Phya Thai area and allegedly raping and assaulting her. The West African citizen of Guinea was arrested at a McDonald’s in Bangkok’s Bang Rak area accused of raping a 17-year-old girl. The girl informed police that she’d been raped by an African man who she had met the day before.
The victim informed officers the man stopped her to ask for directions and asked for her phone number and Line ID. He later contacted her, offering a job and buy her a brand new phone. She claims Keita made an appointment with her which ended up him taking her into the hotel room that was paid with cash from her wallet.
A preliminary investigation found similar prior accusations against Keita for an identical assault.
The man has allegedly confessed to the assault and faces charges of abducting a minor, rape, and theft.
