A technician with seven convictions for robbery pleaded guilty in the Court of First Instance to taking part in the robbery with two others of a Japanese woman who was forced into giving up a bank card late one night in Fo Tan last year. One of the trio pushed Yamazaki Chihiro, 31, into a car, and Ng Kwok-ho, 28, admitted punching her to elicit her PIN code. She lost HK$19,000 from her bank account, as well as other items. The case has been adjourned.
