Couple rob and beat up gun bandit
Forty years after his death, two of Bruce Lee's siblings reminisce about their famous brother's life and a legacy that is inspiring a whole new generation of fighters. Jo Baker reports.
A WOULD-BE thief held up a jade shop yesterday - and was beaten and robbed by the have-a-go shopkeeper and his wife.
The bungling bandit lost his watch to his enraged assailants, while his accomplice looked on in disbelief.
Even firing a ''shot'' didn't help the robber as blows rained on his head. The feeble pop from a fake gun only angered the Mongkok shopkeeper - who chased the terrified pair down the street.
Last night, a team of detectives were investigating the stick-up on Shanghai Street, with the thief's watch as Exhibit A.
Police said the unsuspecting gunman tapped the shopkeeper on the shoulder, showed him a pistol in his waistband, and said: ''You know what to do.'' The shopkeeper certainly did - the bandits escaped empty-handed after dodging down a lane near Reclamation Street and Prince Edward Road.
