A six-year-old girl wrestled with a transvestite who broke into her home and tried to steal her mother's handbag. Cheung Lai-shan knew that Tang Wing-cheung was a man despite his long golden hair and red lipstick, because he had a moustache, the District Court heard yesterday. Tang, 30, entered the girl's flat in Shek Lei Estate, Kwai Chung, through an unlocked door on February 11 while she was at home ill with her three-year-old sister, prosecutor Andrew Chan Hing-wai said. The girls' mother was out picking up Lai-shan's homework from school. Tang yesterday pleaded not guilty to three charges of burglary before Deputy Judge Barnabas Fung Wah. Lai-shan said she was lying in bed when she heard noises in the living room. Getting up to investigate, she found Tang wearing a long blonde wig, red lipstick, a yellow jacket and trousers, and holding a handbag belonging to her mother, Chan Kit-ha. 'He posed as a woman. He had a moustache,' Lai-shan said. She told the court she grabbed the bag and told the defendant: 'Don't take my mother's handbag.' After wrestling with the youngster, the defendant grabbed a wallet from inside the bag and fled, the court heard. Ms Chan later made a report to police. Tang was arrested later that day in the building, carrying a golden wig. Under caution, he admitted another two burglaries in the same estate. The trial continues today.
