Instagram model, 25, and her six-month-old baby son are tied up by three knife-wielding men in $400k raid at her luxury Hong Kong apartment after she posed with designer clothes, jewelry and cash
An Instagram model and her baby son were tied up by three knife-wielding men in a raid at her Hong Kong apartment after she posed with designer clothes and cash.
So Mei-yan, 25, says the robbers broke into her luxury home last Tuesday morning at around 11am. Police say ten handbags, seven watches, a laptop, and two mobile phones worth $400,000 were stolen.
The social media influencer said she was asleep in her room when she heard noise in her living room. So said: ‘When I went out of my bedroom to check, three men were already inside my flat’.
A police spokesman confirmed the men, wearing caps and black surgical mask, were carrying a fruit knife or a wooden rod, adding: ‘As the doorbell rang, the maid opened the door and three men rushed into the unit.’

Describing the incident, So, who has more than 80,000 followers on Instagram, said she was tied up with adhesive tape, along with her baby and her nanny.
She said one of the men was ‘rubbing her son’s forehead with force’ before they searched her home, stealing the designer goods.
So, who told police she did not know the men, added: ‘One of them returned and pulled my hair asking where I put my money.’ She claims one of the men then punched her when she told them there was none in the house.
The men, described as Chinese and aged between 40 and 50, left the apartment with their haul in a suitcase, also stolen from So. They are said to have used the access card of an empty apartment to get inside the building.
She then managed to free herself from her ties before calling police.
A source told The South China Morning Post: ‘We are checking security camera footage to gather evidence.’
Police said the men had tried to enter the apartment the day before as security guards.

In a post online So wrote: ‘I never beat my son, but [the robbers] dared to beat him. Let’s see what will happen.
‘I already gave them everything they wanted but they still beat me, my helper and my son. The three men are so useless that they can only rob women and kids.
‘They even beat a six-month-old baby boy, how shameless are they?’
She added: ‘I’ve told the security guards 10 million times not to let anyone in without my permission.
‘But they still allowed these three weird men in caps and masks to go upstairs.’
