CityNews – A secret brothel posing as a late night restaurant with ‘beautiful waitresses’ was raided by police on Sunday night in the early hours of the morning.
On September 18, police entered the Bang San 1 Bar on Charoenrat Road, as part of a series of planned raids against illegal brothels in the city.
They discovered that the restaurant that served late night food and had ‘beautiful waitresses’ serving drinks was in fact a front for a prostitution service they offered.
Patrons could pay 1500 to 2000 baht to take a woman home with them, with the bar receiving 500 baht each time.
Police arrested three owners, Paitoon Angkaprechased, Suchaya Tammachai and Atchara Kutkaew along with the women providing services to men. The women arrested were of both Thai and foreign nationality, including a number of illegal immigrants.
The bar has now been closed and those arrested are awaiting prosecution.
