What was supposed to be a romantic evening turned into a nightmare for a 22-year-old lady who agreed to a have dinner with a new male friend.
The victim, surnamed Yuen, a self-employed van driver who lives in Sau Mau Ping, met a man in Tsim Sha Tsui a week ago and agreed to have dinner with him on Saturday, news website hk01.com reports.
While they were having the dinner at a restaurant in Tai Po at around 9 p.m., three men, whom her date introduced as his friends, joined their table.
After the dinner, the four men forced her to board a private car.
When they reached Jat’s Incline at Kowloon Peak, an argument broke out between Yuen and the four men, who subsequently slapped her twice in the face and robbed her of her belongings before pushing her out of the vehicle, Apple Daily reported.
Fortunately, Yuen sustained no injuries, but she said she lost HK$12,000 in cash and two mobile phones worth HK$3,100 to the men.
As she was walking downhill, she saw a fire truck and waved for it to stop.
She narrated what happened to her to the fire service officers, who in turn brought her to a police station to file a complaint.
The Wong Tai Sin police district has launched a manhunt for the suspects, who are said to be aged 20 to 30.
At least two of the suspects have blonde-dyed hair and one has tattoos on both arms.
