This is the moment a Thai transsexual pickpockets a British tourist by putting her hand down his trousers in a notorious red light district.
The man, 49, from the North East of England, was strolling through the go-go bar strip of Pattaya, Thailand, at 3.30am on Sunday morning.
CCTV footage shows how a transsexual in hot pants and a revealing pink top approached him and put her hand down the front of his trousers.

The confused Briton, with one hand holding a cigarette, tried to pull away but the transsexual kept their hand down his trousers.
A second sex worker then approached him, allegedly to offer sexual services.
But when the man returned to his hotel he noticed his wallet containing 20,000 Thai baht – the equivalent of £500 – was missing.
He contacted police who checked CCTV and identified the suspects. Officers are now hunting two people over the alleged theft.
The victim claims he had ’19 50 pound notes and 100 20 pound notes’ but the actual amount reported by police was 20,000 Thai baht that was stolen.
