Pedophile From Portland Caught Sexually Harassing Children in Thailand

Surveillance cameras outside a temple in Thailand caught a disturbing scene on Tuesday night after an American pedophile began exposing himself and grabbing at children.

Identified as 65-year-old Michael Stillinger, the pervert from Portland, Oregon, was shown on the film approaching a group of children between the ages of two and nine years old in Pai, Thailand.

The man even snatched and hugged a little girl who was thankfully pulled away by her friend.

Stillinger then dropped his pants to expose his penis while saying the words “I love you” to the children.

A resident named Tom Baroni reportedly took action and called the police after interviewing the terrorized kids. Baroni, who is originally from Sweden, says the sexpat claimed he lives in India and is involved with an orphanage there.

There he was told to pay a fine of 500 Thailand baht for “public nudity”  and another 500 baht for “being drunk in public leading to disorderly conduct.” 

While Stillinger was released that night, he was arrested again soon after investigators reviewed the security camera footage and saw what he has been up to.

They are reportedly now processing the deportation and blacklisting of the sexpat for being a “danger to children.”

“Police investigated the case of Michael Stillinger, aged 65, an American citizen of being naked with children and attempting to perform a lewd act with children,” Pai Police Major General Bandit Tungkasan was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.

“Police in Pai arrested the suspect and he was fined and released. CCTV was checked again after complaints from citizens and we considered this person very dangerous and it is not appropriate for him to stay in Thailand.”

“There is a risk of him doing crimes against children in Thailand. The suspect was caught and sent to the Chiang Mai Provincial Police Department to be charged in the Kingdom of Thailand. The police will also pursue the course for him to be blacklisted so that he is not allowed to enter Thailand. We will continue to push him out of Thailand.”
