    A 22-year-old man who beat a staff member at a Central jewelry store yesterday afternoon and stole HKD88 million in diamonds – half of which he swallowed — has been arrested. The actual arrest wasn’t particularly hard for the police though, as the suspect actually set off the store’s burglary alarm, locking him inside the shop with his victim, and had to be freed by authorities.

    The man, identified as a Jordanian by the name of Mousa, was found in the store room of M&B Diamonds on Wellington Street at around 2:30pm yesterday by police responding to a security alarm. A 38-year-old female shopkeeper surnamed Chu was also found at the store, bruised and unconscious. According to

    , the 22-year-old entered Hong Kong on Wednesday on a tourist visa and had been talking to M&B Diamonds’ owner, a 32-year-old Israeli man surnamed Sheinfeld, about “business” for a while over Instagram.

    Mousa first visited the Central shop at 11am yesterday, while Sheinfeld was present, and stayed for roughly half an hour, during which he was shown millions of dollars’ worth of diamonds. Police said in a press conference that they believed Mousa was casing the shop during this initial visit. Later, at about 1pm, the suspect re-visited the shop while Sheinfeld was away and only two female shopkeepers were present. The 22-year-old lingered until 2pm, when one of the shopkeepers left to eat lunch. Once he was alone with Chu, Mousa reportedly beat the woman until she told him the company safe’s combination, soon after which she fainted.

    The suspect then opened the safe, and emptied it of 17 diamonds and USD8,600 in cash, worth a combined USD11.4 million (HKD89 million), but triggered the shop’s security alarm in the process. As the store automatically went into lockdown and the security company alerted police, Mousa reportedly went into the store room with a glass of water and swallowed nine of the diamonds. After police and Sheinfeld arrived on the scene at about 2:30pm, they found the remaining eight diamonds and cash on Mousa. He was taken to Queen Mary Hospital alongside Chu after claiming to feel unwell.

    Upon reviewing the shop inventory, Sheinfeld reported that a further nine diamonds worth around HKD46.85 million and weighing a combined 180 carats were still missing, which CCTV footage and an X-ray scan confirmed were in Mousa’s belly. Cheng said the diamonds were “as big as eyeballs” and would have been “very painful to swallow”. The hospital will reportedly give Mousa laxatives and consider surgery to retrieve the diamonds. Both he and Chu are reported to be in stable condition.

    A young man caused something of a commotion last night after he was pictured taking the MTR during rush hour wearing only a pair of Crocs and some earphones. The 20-year-old, who was not identified, was first photographed getting cash out in his birthday suit from an HSBC ATM in Tsim Sha Tsui just before 7pm. (But where did he put the cash? Or his bank card, for that matter?)

    . He changed to the Island Line at Admiralty, where MTR workers followed him as railway control staff called the police. In one video which was circulated on social media, the nude man can be heard telling one of the MTR staffers, “I’m getting off at Hang Hau. Will you let me ride the train there?”

    The bemused MTR worker said, “Actually the way that you’re traveling is… not okay. Do you maybe need to get off the train and–“, to which the 20-year-old firmly retorted, “Nope, no need,” before taking a phone call. A witness told Apple Daily that MTR staff rushed onto the train at North Point Station, wrapped the man’s bottom half with a towel, and formed a “human chain” around him to escort him onto the platform, where he was arrested at roughly 7:30pm. A police source told SCMP that the young man, who lives on a Tseung Kwan O housing estate, is believed to have mental health issues and gave “incoherent responses” when questioned by officers.

    In the last three weeks, six Hong Kong women have been caught attempting to smuggle iPhones (among other things) into China by attaching them to their midsections with girdle-like garments.

    Five of the aforementioned women were arrested within half an hour on Wednesday (July 19) by Shenzhen customs authorities. According to

    , the first suspect was searched at 6pm after customs officers noticed that she was “walking strangely” and seemed suspicious. After a search of the woman’s bag yielded nothing, a female officer noticed that she was standing “very stiffly” and frisked her, finding 10 new iPhone 7s strapped to her torso in a girdle. Four other women wearing similar contraptions were apprehended in the next 30 minutes.

    The five women, who were all in their 20s, were found to be carrying a combined 18 iPhone 7s and 688 Intel brand computer processor chips, worth a total of around RMB8 million (HKD9.2 million). Their prize? Between RMB200 to RMB 500 (HKD230 to HKD576) each. Despite the combined worth of their stash, however, the five women’s parallel trading attempts pale in comparison to that of the Hongkonger who tried to smuggle over a hundred luxury gadgets through Lo Wu customs last month.

    Last week, local media outlets reported that a Hong Kong woman was caught at the border with 102 iPhones and 15 Tissot watches bound to her torso on June 30. Unsurprisingly, she set off the metal detector. The unidentified woman’s hijinks even made it onto US talk show

    It seems like clunky electronics aren’t the only thing parallel traders are smuggling nowadays, however — on July 4, a local woman was found to have 124 diamonds (worth HKD2.4 million) taped to her breasts while passing through Sha Tau Kok Control Point, HK01

    Student, 17, sent to training centre for molesting two children, aged 5 and 8

    A secondary school student, whose horrific sexual assaults took such a toll on two children that they copied his acts, was sent to a training centre by a Hong Kong court on Thursday.

    Form five student Guan Wa-kit, 17, previously pleaded guilty to four counts of indecent assault, one of which involved him inviting his neighbours, a six-year-old girl and an eight-year-old boy, to his home to watch pornography.

    In sentencing, deputy District Court judge Jason Wan Siu-ming said it was always a “horrific crime” whenever the molestation involved young children as victims. “Although no physical injuries can be done, a psychological effect can last a lifetime,” he said.

    The judge said Guan’s case bore the hallmarks of aggravating features, in that it was not an isolated incident as the student had molested not just one, but two young victims, each on more than one occasion. He also noted that it was a breach of trust case as the young male victim in question treated the defendant as a “big brother”. But the judge took into account Guan’s remorse and that he was still underage, as compared to an adult whom he said would normally be jailed for up to five years for offences of a similar nature. He therefore sent the teenager to a training centre, where Guan’s lawyers said his client is likely to remain for a year and a half.

    At least three assaults took place between March and December last year. Guan molested the children at his home, where he masturbated in front of the them and asked them to take off their pants. He would also play them pornography, the court heard. On one occasion, he invited both to his home and played them pornographic material while demanding that the girl take off her pants. The assaults were unearthed when the girl displayed unusual behaviour at school, prompting social workers to alert police.

    Subsequent psychological reports sought on the two victims showed that both of them had displayed copycat behaviour: they asked their sister and cousin to take off their pants on separate occasions. While the girl was emotionally distressed, displaying anger, fear and a hint of sexual preoccupation, the boy was ashamed, fearing that his classmates would one day find out what had happened to him, the court heard. But both the victims’ parents, although shocked and angry, wrote to the court to appeal for a lenient sentence for Guan, saying that they had forgiven the molester “to a certain extent”. “After finishing his sentence, hopefully he will become a better person who really deserves to be forgiven by the victims’ family,” the judge said, before sending Guan away.
