Instagram Influencer And Her Baby Attacked At Home In $400,000 Raid
So Mei-Yan, a 25-year-old influencer with 80,000 followers, was attacked at her home in Hong Kong last Tuesday, 24 November, at around 11am by three men wielding weapons who took handbags, computers and devices, and seven incredibly expensive watches.
The attack is thought to be linked to a number of posts shared by Mei-Yan in which she posed in her home with the expensive goods.
In a later post, she wrote: "When I went out of my bedroom to check, three men were already inside my flat."
She has described the attackers as being of Chinese descent, and between 40 and 50 years of age. The attackers wore black surgical masks and hats and appear to have used a key card from another apartment in the luxury complex to gain access to the building.
A police spokesperson confirmed: "As the doorbell rang, the maid opened the door and three men rushed into the unit"
The gang tied up Mei-Yan, as well as her maid. However, they also threatened her baby son during the incident as well.
Mei-Yan said that one of the men was 'rubbing [her] son's forehead with force, before they searched [her] home, stealing the designer goods'.

The influencer claims that one of the men punched her when she explained that she had no money in her apartment.
She posted: "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? 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".
Eventually, so managed to free herself and called the police. A source told the South China Morning Post: "We are checking security camera footage to gather evidence."
It is also thought that the men tried to gain access to the building the day before by posing as security guards.
