A man in Phitsanulok was arrested and charged on Tuesday with forcing a 19-year-old girl to take part in "swinging" parties and selling videos of her on Twitter and the Line app.
He was caught while living on the run as a novice Buddhist monk.
The father of the girl filed a complaint on Sept 18 with police that his daughter was raped, held captive and physically assaulted by Natthaphat Charurerk.
Mr Natthaphat, 21, was also accused of organising for the victim to be gang raped and recording the crime with his mobile phone. He allegedly published and advertised images and clips of the rape on Twitter and Line to make money. The suspect offered a 600-baht subscription for online users to join his group.
Police said Mr Natthaphat had forced the victim into joining swinging parties many times in the Phichit, Phetchabun and Phitsanulok provinces.
Police said the suspect had a romantic relationship with the victim for a year before recording their sexual activities.
Mr Natthaphat has been charged with forcing a person to provide sex services and violating the Computer Crime Act. He could also face a human trafficking charge.
