A taxi driver who robbed, sexually assaulted and then drove his vehicle over a woman passenger was captured the next night while committing an almost identical crime. Li Kwok-ming, 43, attacked his victims by stopping the car on the pretence of going to the boot. He then leaped into the back seat and attacked, the Court of First Instance heard yesterday. Li pleaded guilty before Mr Justice Pang Kin-kee to robbery, attempted robbery, indecent assault and assault on the women in two separate attacks. Sentencing was adjourned for a psychological report to be prepared. The first attack happened early on October 4 last year when a woman hailed his cab at the Royal Pacific Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui. Li stopped the car in Ferry Street, Yau Ma Tei, claiming the boot was not secure. Li jumped into the back with a fruit knife, telling the woman he was robbing her and threatening to stab her if she shouted for help. He stole bank cards and $2,200 cash and then grabbed her neck and sexually assaulted her. When she resisted, he dragged her out of the car and beat her. Li got back into the car, drove forward and reversed into her before speeding off. The woman was rushed to hospital with multiple wounds and had an emergency operation to remove a ruptured spleen. Early the next morning Li picked up another woman from the YMCA in Kowloon City. When she handed him $100 he told her he had to get change from the boot. He then leaped into the back seat, demanded all her money and started strangling her. A nearby resident heard the commotion and alerted police. The woman had fainted and was found with her chest exposed. Li was arrested and his victim taken to hospital.
