A man carrying a fake revolver and police warrant was ambushed by police in Yau Ma Tei yesterday. Police had been hunting the air-conditioning technician, surnamed Lai, 24, since he allegedly robbed a sex worker of HK$3,000 on December 22 after producing the warrant. About 20 officers were involved in the ambush and subdued Lai after a struggle in Hi Lung Lane at about 6pm. A torch, plastic binders, a fake gun and five fake bullets were seized.
