Rich beau arrested for break-in

A wealthy Chinese businessman heard rumours that his celebrity TV presenter girlfriend was seeing another man, so he flew to Hong Kong in his private jet to confront her.

Instead, Li Jun, 42, was arrested last Thursday for burglary and possession of a prohibited weapon.

Li's girlfriend is Phoenix TV's Shen Xing, 38, reputed to be the most beautiful TV presenter in China, reported Hong Kong's The Standard.

Li flew into Hong Kong last Wednesday evening and went straight to Miss Shen's Jade Court apartment in the upscale Kowloon Tong residential district, but she was not home.

He returned the next morning at about 7.35am, but Miss Shen refused to open the door. Li then asked his driver, known as Chan, to drive the seven- seater vehicle up to the compound's wall and Li climbed over.

Armed with a telescopic baton, he smashed the French window on Miss Shen's first-floor balcony and climbed in.

He found another businessman, Mr Wu Jian, 46, in the apartment, a source told The Standard.

Li's break-in was caught on CCTV and a security guard called the police.
