BANGKOK, June 11 (UPI) -- Bangkok police have arrested a man who allegedly confessed to throwing acid randomly on at least 30 people during May and early June.

Rachan carried out the attacks in several areas of Bangkok, including Saphan Khwai, Pratunam, Ratchaprasong, Victory Monument, and Lat Phrao.
