Street calligrapher Tsang Cho-choi, 82, who is better known as the 'King of Kowloon', complained to police yesterday that he had been robbed. Mr Tsang - who has roamed Kowloon for years, writing Chinese characters on walls, flyover pillars, and electric and telephone boxes - told police officers he had money stolen from his trousers left hanging near the door of his flat in Kwun Tong. He said a woman carrying a baby came to his flat at Tsui Lok House, in Tsui Ping South Estate, yesterday and asked to borrow money so she could buy powdered milk for her child. He said that as he spoke to her, the wooden door of his flat was open while the metal grille was closed. 'I refused her request and she later left. I then discovered $100 placed inside my trouser pocket, which was hanging near the door, was stolen,'' he told police. While being interviewed by police, Mr Tsang told them he had hurt his hand in a fall several days earlier and that it required treatment. Mr Tsang, who now needs to use a walking stick, was taken to United Christian Hospital where he was treated and later discharged. But when reporters later called at his flat, he told them a different story. Mr Tsang claimed that while he was taking a bath, a man and a woman entered and ransacked his flat, and he later discovered about $50,000 had been stolen. He said he hurt his left hand while he struggled with the intruders. Mr Tsang claims his famous graffiti are 'writs' against the Hong Kong government, which he said had snatched land belonging to his clan. The graffiti caught the eye of fashion and furniture fabric designers who later copied them. Mr Tsang's writings, referred to as 'broken sentences', have also been on display in art exhibitions.
