A man was recorded on video trying to create a phony accident by hurling himself at a slow moving car and he thought he could get away. Luckily the man was not hurt as displayed from the dashcam footage. The incident happened on December 9th in Cheung Sha Wan. Police officers placed the 41 year old suspect under arrest for a fake hit and run (he being the one who ran away, in this case).

This suspect is allegedly a serial offender who is also linked to four other instances of deliberately getting “hit” by cars before asking for money. According to HK01, the man initially denied he was demanding cash on the planned collision. He claimed he rushed in front of the car because he was upset after arguing with his girlfriend. Then his history of phony pedestrian collisions emerged, prompting police to reclassify the case from “normal traffic accident” to suspected fraud.

The Police linked him to four similar instances in Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok that occured in the last year . Each time he would rush on to the road get “knocked over” and demand cash. However he has never succeeded, according to HK01. Police are also seeking a female accomplice who, in the most recent case, appeared to deliberately stop the driver from pursuing the suspect by blocking his path and shout that she was being “molested.”

The ideas that people come up with when they get desperate. They truly feel that scamming people and trying over and over again will up their chances without them getting caught.
