A Thammasat University student was injured yesterday when she tried to

apprehend a man who allegedly tried to take pictures under her skirt

at Phrom Phong BTS station, police said.

Fourth-year student Pakhinee Srimangkla, 21, complained to police that

the man attempted to take the photographs with his mobile-phone camera

while she was riding on an escalator, said Lt Colonel Srisook Phrommee

of Thong Lor police station.

The student, a trainee with Channel 3 television station, said she

felt something touch her skirt and turned to see a middle-aged bald

Thai man holding a mobile phone.

"I asked him what he was doing, and he reared back saying he did not

do anything and tried to run away," she said.

She grabbed him but he shook her off so violently that both fell.

The man escaped but Pakhinee sustained a cut to her left leg requiring

seven stitches and sprained her right ankle.

Police have assembled a composite sketch of the man, who they say will

be charged with injuring another person and causing annoyance to

others if caught.

Meanwhile, the Phra Nakhon Tai District Court sentenced to two months

imprisonment and a Bt2,000 fine a Financial Ministry official, Worakun

Jarupphat, 27, who had similarly used a digital camera to take

pictures of models' underwear at a car exhibition in Central Plaza

Rama 3.

Since Worakun, who was charged with taking obscene pictures with

intent to sell and distribute, confessed to the crime, the court first

reduced the sentence to one month imprisonment and Bt1,000 fine and

later to a two-year suspended jail term reasoning the man was an

educated person and useful to society.
