Two robbers tried to prise gold teeth from a 58-year-old man in an attack in Pat Heung yesterday. The man, who has six gold teeth, was pushed to the ground from behind by the pair shortly after he alighted from a minibus in Kam Sheung Road at about 6am while on his way to a dim sum restaurant. 'The victim put up a struggle but was overpowered and threatened at knifepoint,' a police officer said. 'The pair snatched his bag containing $1,100, his identity card and Home Return Permit and tried to take out his gold teeth with a knife handle but failed.' The two robbers fled with the bag as another villager shouted for help. They were seen getting into a minibus to escape. The victim sustained hand injuries in the struggle and was taken to Pok Oi Hospital for treatment.
