A suspect wearing glasses stole HK$300 from a taxi on Shau Kei Wan Road at midnight yesterday when the taxi driver left his car to have supper.
Upon checking his dash cam in the car, he saw a man tried to open the driver’s door but failed as it was locked. He then continued to attempt on other doors and he managed to open the passenger’s door on the left side of the taxi before making off with the cash.
The driver then decided to patrol around the area to look for the suspect and miraculously, he came across the 48 year old man on Oi Man Street nearby. He immediately approached the man, restrained him and called the police. Police arrested him under motor vehicle theft offence.
