Four big men intercept a robbery, it's not easy, Yung Mei Ling breaks her fortune to save her innocence, regrets driving the wrong car ....

Broadcast Drive is a place where film and television personalities live and where law and order has never been bad. However, after the midnight robbery of Yung Mei Ling, the area has now become a black spot for criminals.

She lost only a thousand dollars in cash and a watch. She was so shocked by the robbery that whenever her friends talk about it in front of her she looked as scared as if she had seen a ghost.

"It's horrible!" she says. Her voice still trembles.

It is said that the robbery was planned, otherwise two cars and four men would not have been deployed.

"In fact, they were probably watching you all along!"

"I was very careful to get rid of them, thinking that they would leave on their own, but then the accident happened when I got back to Broadcast Drive."

What kind of car were you driving?

"My friends said it was too flashy for a single girl to drive, which is probably why I attracted the attention of the robbers." She regretted that she had driven the wrong car.

As she drove her car back to Broadcast Drive near her home, two cars suddenly caught up with her, one in front of the other, and the other behind her, stopping her in the middle.

"Subconsciously, I braked hard and honked the horn, because it was so quiet around me. I think I woke up a lot of people!" she recalls, her face still tense.

"What happened afterwards?"

"The car stopped, and when I got my bearings, I saw a man jump out of each of the two cars, and they were moving very quickly."

"Were they armed?"

"I don't remember very clearly, but I wouldn't have resisted if they hadn't had weapons". She was confused!

"Did they say anything to you?"

"I don't remember, I don't think they said anything, it was only for a few minutes, I remember they took my handbag and watch and then they ran back to the cars."

"If they had come back, they might do something else!"

It wasn't a deliberate attempt to intimidate her. In fact, from what she said, they had a plan to stop and rob her.

"I can't imagine what they would have done," she said in wondering.

"Maybe they'll kidnap?"

"I don't think so. I'm not rich, and I'm an artist, so I'm in the limelight. Where could I hide if they kidnapped me?"

Maybe she had a point.

"Didn't you ever worry that they would rob you?"

"I was so confused that I didn't think of any possibilities. My first thought was that they were looking for money."

"What would you have done if they had done something?"

"I don't know, but I would have fought back and screamed until someone saved me," she said seriously.

Screaming and resisting is a subconscious thing to do, but it probably didn't occur to Yung Mei Ling that she might not have had the strength to resist in that situation, so if it hadn't been for the watchman, she would have been in for a very bad time.

"You have to thank the watchman!"

"I've already thanked him, but he was surprised by the press I made on Changan". She said reassuringly.

After the assailant left that night, she went to the police station and gave a statement on the advice of the watchman.

"I thought I could get a good night's sleep and go back to work the next day, but it didn't work out that way," she says. She shook her head and sighed.

At the time of the statement, Yung Mei Ling remembered the licence plate of one of the cars driven by the culprit, which was later found by the police and confirmed to be a stolen car.

"Did you recognize the look of the culprit?"

"It was so dark and I was so scared that I didn't recognise him. I didn't intend to pursue the matter, but if I hadn't insisted on calling the police, I would have let it go."

Some people may think that Yung Mei Ling was wrong in not co-operating with the police when a crime had been committed, but from her point of view, as a celebrity, she would have been worried about reporting the crime to the police.

"It's no wonder she didn't want to report the incident. I've heard of people being robbed at home before, but they didn't want to talk about it. I think it's best to have a police post here," she said, as if she were complaining.

"Will you dare to go to the night street again?"

"It's a long story, I've been so busy filming Chu Liu Xiang that I haven't had time to go out. I had a bit of free time that day, so I had dinner and chatted with my friends. I was driving home at three o'clock, and it was such a coincidence that I was intercepted."

"Why didn't Kent pick you up?"

"He had to work that day and I only informed him when I arrived at the police station. But he couldn't pick me up at the police station because he was working."

I understand how helpless and lonely Yung Mei Ling felt at that time.

"You really have to be careful when you go out in the future!"

"In fact, it is very difficult to avoid such things. It's not uncommon for us artists to return home at midnight. Sometimes there is no point in being careful, it's just meant to be!"

I'm sure it's just a matter of time.

"But I'll be careful from now on, at least I won't be driving around so much!"

It was then that she smiled lightly.

As long as she is safe and sound, she doesn't care how much she loses.
