Surat Thani police have arrested a Myanmar man in connection with an attempted rape on an Israeli woman on the tourist island of Koh Phangan on Monday. 

The man was identified only as Bo, 25, a trash collector at Tommy Resort, which is located not far from where the rape took place, Pol Col Witthaya Wangsadarn, chief of the Koh Phangan police station, said on Tuesday.

The arrest came after a tip-off from the hotel’s owner, who suspected his employee of attacking Ms Havory (surname withheld), a 23-year-old Israeli tourist, he said.
