Police have arrested three more suspects in connection with a robbery in Tsim Sha Tsui in which suitcases containing foreign currency worth millions of dollars were snatched in broad daylight.

The three were arrested on Wednesday in Sham Shui Po and Ngau Tau Kok, and are aged between 26 and 38.

This brings the total number of arrests to six, and officers say two suspects are still on the run.

Police said a group of five people were taking two suitcases filled with 450 million Japanese yen (HK$33 million) from a money exchange in Chungking Mansions to a bank on Carnarvon Road when the attack happened on February 9.

According to the police, eight men attacked them and snatched the bags and escaped in a seven-seater vehicle. On the same day, officers found the vehicle and arrested three alleged robbers. All the money was recovered.
