Police were searching for a gang of masked men who tied up a security guard with cable wires and escaped with HK$86,000 (US$11,008) in cash, a mobile phone and 11 watches from a driving range in Hong Kong before dawn on Monday.

The citywide manhunt for the four thieves started after the guard managed to use his tongue to make a 999 emergency call from the office of the Golf Park Golfers Club in Ting Kok Road, Tai Po just before 5am. “Initial investigation showed that four thieves wearing balaclavas pushed the guard to the floor and tied up his arms and legs with cable wires before covering him with clothes in the golf club’s office,” a police spokesman said. He said the gang robbed the victim of a mobile phone and HK$25,000 and then pried open a safe in the office to steal HK$60,000 from it.

Police said the gang also stole HK$1,000 from a restaurant and 11 watches from a souvenir shop in the facility. Officers scoured the area, but no arrests were made. According to police, the four robbers were thought to be aged between 20 and 30. Detectives from the Tai Po district crime squad were handling the case.

According to official statistics, police handled 137 reports of robbery across the city in the first 10 months of this year, down 39.1 per cent compared with 225 in the same period last year.

Great job with calling the cops with your tongue.  How do you even manage to do that?  Does the tongue even register on the phone???  I just tried it and I guess I'm not as talented as the guard.  LOL  Good job.

I guess when you are that desperate you find a way. Even thought the rate of crime involving robberies have decreased, it is still a problem and more importantly it puts lives at risk.

As long he is ok and not much harm has been done on him, you would do anything to safe and set your free under this circumstance.
