TWO men who tried to escape from the police, could not possibly have thought they would get away as they had earlier handed over their identity cards, a defence counsel submitted yesterday. Sabrina See asked Deputy Judge Morley to consider the guilty pleas of unemployed Mohammad Aslam, 21, and delivery worker Cheung Yan-lung, 18. They faced charges of taking a conveyance without authority and causing injury by furious driving. Aslam was jailed for two years and banned from driving for the same period, while Cheung was put on 18 months' probation. The court heard that two Daihatsu cars were taken from car parks in On Ting estate early last December. Police on patrol observed the defendants, one of whom was carrying a television set, walking towards the cars. They were stopped and asked to produce their identity cards. Police noticed the car engines had been left running and the locks appeared to have been forced. As they approached the cars to investigate, Aslam pushed through the officers, got into one car and started reversing. Police officers grabbed hold of him to prevent him driving away but were dragged to the ground as Aslam reversed across the road and stopped at a fence. Two of the officers sustained injuries. Revolvers were drawn and warning shots were fired. Both defendants got out of the car and fled but were found the same day at the Music Motion Karaoke in Tuen Mun, where they were arrested.
