An unemployed Hongkonger accused of robbing a delivery man of 600 rolls of toilet paper on Monday has been denied bail.
Ho Chi-leung, 26, was brought to Kwun Tong Court on Friday to face one count of robbery, which is punishable by a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
Court documents showed Ho was an unemployed man with no fixed place of abode.
He was accused of acting with two other men to rob Ng Chi-man outside a Wellcome supermarket on Mong Kok Road at about 5am on February 17. The alleged accomplices have yet to be apprehended.
The 600 toilet paper rolls, wrapped in 50 packs, were valued at HK$1,695.
Prosecutors did not ask for a plea, saying they needed more time for further inquiry.
But they opposed Ho's application for bail, citing concerns that cannot be reported for legal reasons.
Acting principal magistrate Ko Wai-hung adjourned the case to April 17 in West Kowloon Court.
Ho was remanded into custody until his next hearing.
