A robber grabbed a woman hiker by the neck with one hand and threatened her with a chopper with his other hand on the MacLehose Trail three days ago, Sai Kung Police tell BUZZ. There were two female hikers together, a mother and her daughter. The frightening crime occurred at Buffalo Hill, MacLehose Trail Section 4, on February 20 at 1515 hours.

Senior Inspector Max Yip said the robber escaped with a diamond necklace and a pair of earrings, two mobile phones and $400 in cash.  He fled towards Sam Fai Tin. Max said Shatin police are handling the case.

“We have prepared a special alert and have sent to the ambassadors of the Sai Kung Neighbourhood Watch Scheme,” he wrote in an email.

The police issued this description of the criminal: Black and white horizontally striped polo shirt, blue mask, light coloured trousers, Chinese male, 40 to 50 years of age, short black hair, thin, about 180c in height, speaks Putonghua.
