Police Arrest 23 for Inappropriately Touching Women During Songkran Celebrations in Yunnan
Apr 18, 2014 By eChinacities.com

On April 15 during Songkran (the festival associated with the Thai New Year) celebrations in Xishuangbanna, a few of the men in attendance got a little out of hand, and were subsequently arrested for their actions.

The main feature of the festival is the spraying with water of one person to the next. Thousands of people gathered in the Dai Autonomous Prefecture of Xishuangbanna in Yunnan to participate in the playful festivities. But things took a turn for the worst when I few men got a little frisky and started feeling up some of the women and young girls. The men would approach a woman, spray her in the face with water so that she would be momentarily blinded, and then proceed to fondle her breasts and waist.

Police were at the ready, however, and arrested a total of 23 men whom the caught with lewd intentions and wandering hands. One man took it so far that he is being detained and investigated for molestation. It’s a pity that fun can no longer remain innocent.

I see they blured the man's face. I can't help but wonder if they would have blurred a foreigners face.

I wonder if my hands wonder and if they wonder, what do they wonder about?
