A BOGUS doctor yesterday snatched a company owner's trousers, containing $8,000 in cash, after convincing the victim to strip for a check-up.

The theft occurred at an electronic engineering company in Boundary Street, Mongkok.

Claiming to be a doctor, the stranger told the 63-year-old owner he looked unhealthy and asked to give him an examination.

The victim took the man to his office, but as he took off his trousers the stranger suddenly grabbed them and ran off.
