Man arrested after storming into Tsuen Wan partition flat and injuring two
A 33-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday morning after he stormed into a partitioned flat in Tsuen Wan with scissors and a screwdriver and injured two people, including a nine-year-old boy.
The incident occurred about 7am this morning when the suspect, surnamed Wong, knocked on the door and asked the female tenant if she kept a dog.
After the woman said no, Wong said, “You don’t keep a dog, follow me!” The woman sensed something was off and slammed the door closed, but Wong kicked the door open and threatened to kill her, holding a pair of scissors and a screwdriver in his hands.
Wong attempted to drag the woman out of the flat but failed. The woman immediately called her husband for help after retreating into the flat and closing the wooden door.
The husband, a 44-year-old construction worker, confronted Wong as he returned to his home just in time and subdued Wong together with his wife. The couple’s nine-year-old son sustained an injury to his neck as Wong once got hold of the boy’s neck shortly during the quarrel.
Police rushed to the scene and arrested Wong for aggravated burglary and failing to present ID documents after receiving the report.
The husband sustained an injury to his forehead, neck, and hands, while Wong also injured his forehead. The two and the boy were all sent to Yan Chai Hospital by ambulance.
It was understood that Wong didn’t know the husband in person, and he had been acting strangely and talking weirdly.
The husband recalled he received the call from his wife at the bus stop shortly after leaving home and immediately rushed back home. He added he will consider moving home as he is very concerned about his family’s safety.
