The 80-year-old businessman at the centre of a shoot-out between his abductors and police said yesterday he was treated kindly by his kidnappers during the 2.5-hour ordeal. After being spotted by police, So Cha-tong's captors jumped out of his car and fled, triggering a gun battle with officers in a busy Tsim Sha Tsui street at lunchtime on Wednesday. Yesterday morning, Mr So lowered the back-seat window of his Toyota Lexus to speak to reporters outside his home in Verbena Road, Kowloon Tong. 'The two kidnappers treated me politely and I didn't suffer during the whole incident,' Mr So said. 'I'm fine. When they started smoking, I asked them to lower the window and they stopped smoking. They were polite to me.' The metal trader and racehorse owner was bundled into his chauffeur-driven car at gunpoint as he left his house for his office on Wednesday morning. About an hour after he was abducted, a call was made to his office demanding a $200,000 ransom for his release. Mr So was pushed out of his car when the two abductors jumped out in a traffic jam after being seen by police. A gunfight then broke out in which 19 shots were fired and a police officer was injured. Later on Wednesday, officers arrested three men - a mainland visitor and two Macau residents - aboard a Macau-bound Turbojet ferry at the Macau Ferry Terminal in Sheung Wan. A pistol with a bullet jammed in the chamber found at the scene of the shootout was yesterday confirmed to be a 9mm Russian-made Makarov. Police are still looking for a second pistol. Yesterday, the two Macau residents, aged 31 and 42, were released on bail of $5,000 each. The 27-year-old mainlander, a two-way permit holder, was charged with one count of kidnapping and will appear in Kwun Tong Court today. A man, 31, arrested in connection with the abduction of the grandson of late tycoon Li Po-chun on Thursday was charged with kidnapping last night. He will appear in North Kowloon Court today. The victim was reportedly freed after part-payment of a ransom demand. A second man arrested early yesterday in May Shing Estate, Sha Tin, was still being detained last night.
