An alleged rapist went to extreme lengths to avoid being arrested by hiding in the ceiling of an apartment. Officers arrived at a flat in Thailand after neighbours heard two Vietnamese women calling for help when one was assaulted by the man.
According to police, suspect Seksan Parinyaseri, 21, had knocked on the women’s door and forced his way inside when one stepped outside to speak on her mobile phone around at 3am on Friday morning. He then alleged to have locked the door from inside and assaulted the second woman.
When she called for help, Parinyaseri -fearing capture but unable to unlock the door, climbed inside the ceiling through one of the loose panels.
When police arrived at the Bangkok residence he was spotted inside the roof but refused to come down – and kept scampering to different areas above the room.
Cops had to poke different square ceiling tiles with a stick until he was eventually cornered and fell through the ceiling. Police arrested the drunk man and said he would be charged with attempted rape, evading arrest and breaking into a private home.
