HK Police On The Hunt For Man Who Tried To Rob Finance Company With Water Gun
The past year has been tough on all of us as many people have been pushed to the edge financially, leaving them desperate for a way out. Two men in Hong Kong probably found themselves in a similar situation when they decided to rob a finance company, but with a water pistol.
According to Hong Kong’s Apple Daily, the two men had visited a finance company in Sheung Shui at 11.51am on Monday morning, in hopes of borrowing HK$200 million (RM106 million). Naturally, their ridiculous request was rejected by a female employee.
Out of anger, one of the men pulled out a water pistol and pointed it at the 30-year-old employee, who remains unfazed. Defeated and I’m guessing slightly humiliated, both suspects could only leave the company empty-handed.
But that’s not all, because just moments later, one of the suspects decided to return and this time, he even pointed a pen at the employee and challenged her to lodge a police report. He was then arrested on the spot by the rest of the company’s employees.
The 27-year-old suspect is now investigated for assault and possessing an offensive weapon, but police are still on the hunt for his accomplice who managed to escape.
