Diamond Robbery
A daring robbery in the busy Hong Kong shopping district of Tsim Sha Tsui took only seven seconds: According to a report in IDEX Online, a masked robber smashed the display window of the 3D-Gold jewelry chain store “with a heavy hammer”, grabbed a 6.6-carat diamond ring worth $640,000, and fled.

The ring was the most expensive item on display, a source told the South China Morning Post (SCMP). The smash-and-grab artist used a 21-inch-long hammer to break the display window.

After grabbing the lot, the man “ran into a nearby alley and went into a lavatory where he left behind the clothes he had been wearing and changed into different clothes”.
