Police arrested a man accused of stealing money and a mobile phone from a transsexual and forcing the victim to perform fellatio on him. The 22-year-old transgender man, whose name was withheld, told police that Anuchai Prakorbkaew, 27, followed him while he was driving his motorcycle home in Ratchaburi province on Wednesday morning. Mr Anuchai caught him up and told the victim to get off the motorcycle, then forced him to give oral sex before robbing him. The victim said he saw the suspect trying to sell the stolen cell phone near his workplace on Thursday. The thief confessed that he had stolen the phone and some money. However, he said, the 22-year-old voluntarily gave him oral sex. Police said that Mr Anuchai was also on drugs and had failed a urine test.
