A gang hijacked a truck and made off with $1.8 million worth of Samsung mobile phones in Kwai Chung in the latest hijacking. The truck was travelling along Kwai Tak Street late on Monday night when a man dashed out in front of it, forcing the driver to stop. Five or six accomplices who had been waiting in two vans punched the driver and his assistant, then dragged them out of the truck, said an investigator. The victims were tied, gagged and blindfolded and forced into one of the vans. The gang drove the three vehicles for about 1km and pulled over in Kwai Yuen Street. The victims were returned to the truck before the gang fled in the vans. The two men, both aged 21, managed to free themselves and report the robbery. Police said the robbers had made off with 18 boxes of Samsung mobile phones. Each box contained 100 phones. The delivery worker was treated for facial injuries at Princess Margaret Hospital and the driver was bandaged at the scene. The lorry had been loaded with the goods in Minden Avenue, Tsim Sha Tsui, at about 9.30pm on Monday. The phones were due to be delivered to a warehouse about 100 metres from the crime scene. On April 20, two robbers escaped with electronic parts worth $9.62 million after dashing in front of a truck in Ngau Tau Kok, hijacking the vehicle and knocking out the driver with drugs.
