A former Chinese stylist, dressed as a beautiful woman and lured men he had met online into a hotel where drugged and robbed them.
Tang 48, usually pretended to be a rich divorcee who was “looking for a good time” with men who were available.
He was arrested when he invited a 22-year-old man Zhang Jun, to a hotel and robbed him of his money and belongings.
Zhang reported him to the police when he woke up the next morning from his drowsiness. The police easily fished the ‘man-woman’ out from the detailed description Zhang gave them and arrested him at another hotel where he had gone to rob other victims.
What Tang usually did was, he will entice men with sexy snaps over social media and agree to meet them in hotel rooms in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. Once he was with them, he would slip high doses of sleeping pills into their drinks, watch them doze off and rob them of their money and valuables.
He used “Black Rose” as an alias and was said to have targeted some six rich people in his sophisticated scam until he was arrested by the police when he had gone to rob Zhang.
The Province police says not even their eagle eye could make Tang out when they brought him into custody. According to the police they initially thought he was a female con artist until he removed his wig and make-up.
The con man who is married but separated from his wife revealed to the police that he learnt the make-up tricks as a young barber.
Meanwhile, Tang is in police custody and waiting to be charged with multiple counts of fraud and robbery.
