A man with a suspected uniform fetish was arrested on Wednesday for theft after he stole a flight attendant’s luggage as he got off an airport bus.
The incident happened in a Whampoa Garden bus stop, Sky Post reported Thursday.
A passenger called the police after seeing the 30-year-old man offload the luggage.
The police confirmed it belonged to a Cathay Pacific flight attendant.
A search of the suspect’s flat turned up flight attendants’ uniforms and name tags.
Also, two luggage cases were found at a shopping mall near the bus stop which were later confirmed to belong to Cathay flight attendants.
The suspect has been involved in several luggage thefts in the past.
Last month, he tried to extort money from a flight attendant in exchange for her missing luggage, police said.
He was charged with five counts of theft and one count of extortion and was to appear in court on Thursday.
