PATTAYA: Police have arrested and fined a 26-year-old man for public masturbation for the third time, after he put on a show on a motorbike he stole for the purpose.
The district police chief said on Wednesday that Jetpinit Nonseerat, from Khon Kaen province, was arrested at his room in tambon Nong Kham of Si Racha district.
Police identified him from camera footage as the man who masturbated in front of a group of female receptionists in front of the Season Chill restaurant on Pattaya 3 Road late on Monday night.
Mr Jetpinit had been arrested twice previously for public masturbation.
On Monday night he had ridden a stolen red Yamaha Fino motorbike to the restaurant, the police said. The licence plates had been removed.
Mr Jetpinit told police he worked as a salesman for an electrical appliances store and had a girlfriend. He had been treated previously for mental illness, in Khon Kaen, but had lately stopped taking his medicine.
He said he had no intention to rape anyone and he stole the motorcycle from a nearby apartment building especially for the Monday night act.
Police fined him 5,000 baht for public nudity and theft.
