A 66-year-old worker at a makeshift refuelling station in Hong Kong was robbed at knifepoint for the third night in a row, with three men stealing HK$1,000 (S$173) in the early hours of Monday.
The worker – Kwan Chung-chow – was held up under the Ching Cheong Road flyover in Cheung Sha Wan.
Police said HK$17,700 was taken in the previous two incidents in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday. A police source said each robbery involved three men, whose descriptions were similar in all three cases.
He said detectives from the Sham Shui Po criminal investigation unit were looking into whether the same gang was behind the three cases.
