A man who leapt to help a policewoman subdue an assailant in a Mong Kok street received his second Good Citizen Award yesterday. Paul Chan Kwok-on was among 40 people recognised for public-spirited actions. Other recipients included a 74-year-old man who struggled with a taxi driver who attacked a teenage girl and a woman who reported her boss for transferring more than HK$300 million of clients' money into his own account. Mr Chan, a St John's Ambulance member, was walking down the street eating a fish ball and talking on his phone about midnight on October 25 last year when he saw two men beating another. A patrolling policeman and policewoman stepped in but the woman had trouble subduing one of the men, so Mr Chan threw away his fish ball and helped her wrestle the man to the ground and handcuff him. 'I did not think of my own safety at that moment. I just did what a citizen should do,' said Mr Chan, 45, a hygiene consultant and part-time tutor for a security company. He received his first award aged 16 in 1978 when he reported a rape suspect. Au Yee-shum was doing morning exercises in a Chai Wan street on November 4 when he saw a taxi driver attack a girl, 17, with a hammer and stick and then try to stuff her into the boot of the car. He struggled with the driver, who drove off without the girl. Mr Au called police and when the taxi returned he recognised the number and identified the driver. Jennifer Carver McLennan, the chief executive of 3A Asia Limited, reported a former boss for transferring HK$363 million to his personal account in 2004. She discovered some documents had been 'mistakenly' filed and went straight to the Securities and Futures Commission. The man was convicted of 19 counts of false accounting and sentenced to 41/2 years' jail. Award recipients get a certificate and a HK$2,000 cheque.
