Suspect arrested, police are searching for three others in connection with the case.
The South China Morning Post reports that a mainland Chinese man has been arrested after HSBC Asia-Pacific chief executive Peter Wong Tung-shun became the latest victim in a string of break-ins in Hong Kong when his luxury house on The Peak was burgled on Sunday night.
An initial investigation showed eight watches and jewellery worth a total of HK$2.45 million (US$316,000) was stolen from Wong’s Middle Gap Road residence, police said.
The suspect, 24, was arrested on Monday for illegal immigration and burglary after he sought treatment at Sha Tin Hospital for arm injuries, according to a police source. He is being detained for enquiries. A police spokeswoman failed to say whether any of the stolen property was recovered.
Police are searching for three other men in connection with the case.
