Pol Capt Wissanu Chaiyasuwan, deputy chief of Pattaya Police, said the suspect was named as Jamie (surname not given).
The victim, Sujittra Penthep, said the man was riding a bicycle towards her and snatched her purse in Chon Buri's Banglamung district.

Police said Jamie illegally entered Thailand and struggled to speak Thai.
