    A suspected Hong Kong triad member accused of making an elderly man drink a can of Coke at knifepoint was arrested in a police raid on Monday.  The 44-year-old man with a pigtail was picked up at a Portland Street guest house in Mong Kok at about 10.30pm and arrested for possessing an offensive weapon.

    In the early hours of Tuesday, officers escorted the hooded and handcuffed suspect to his public housing flat in Wong Tai Sin for a house search. The Hongkonger – believed to be from the Sun Yee On triad – is a part-time bouncer at a Tsim Sha Tsui entertainment venue controlled by a gang leader nicknamed “Sai B”, according to a police source. Police are still looking for the elderly victim who was allegedly stopped on the street by the suspect and ordered at knifepoint to drink a can of Coke at the junction of Arran Street and Canton Road in Mong Kok at about 5pm on Friday.

    Officers were sent to the scene after receiving a report from a passer-by. The suspect hurled the knife on the floor, grabbed the drink can from the victim and fled on foot before they arrived. Police seized the weapon at the scene, but the victim had also left. No one was injured in the incident.   

    A police source said the suspect carried the knife for his own protection because he owed someone money. “Initial investigation shows the suspect is a drug abuser,” the source said, adding that it was possible that he had been under the influence of drugs at the time. He said the suspect was identified after officers examined security camera footage from the scene. As of noon on Tuesday, the man was still being held for questioning and had not been charged. Detectives from the Mong Kok police district anti-triad squad are handling the case.

    A cat facing “arrest” for scratching a young boy from the mainland is gaining popular support, with tens of thousands of people signing a petition to save the feline, whose owners say he’s been falsely accused. Marbles, who resides at a pharmacy in Kwun Tong, became a wanted cat last Friday when a woman from the mainland accused him of scratching her 5-year-old son while they were shopping at the store.

    In the sights of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, the locally-loved neighbourhood cat is firmly in the center of a social media campaign — and quickly gaining politically allies. Pro-democratic lawmaker Roy Kwong has launched a

    Kwong said the AFCD had now requested the owners surrender the alleged attacker, who remains at home and allegedly unable to eat, presumably from the shock of the whole episode. A staff member at the pharmacy, however, told Ming Pao news that Marbles had been wrongly accused.  She referred to CCTV footage, which she said exonerated the little guy, whose plight has upset neighbourhood residents. Kwong as well as the Liberal Party have written to the AFCD to save Marbles.

    Questioning the grounds of attempts to detain him, the Liberal Party said Marbles received regular vaccines,

    An elderly woman was found dead inside a Hong Kong flat on Sunday after a man was reported to have fallen from the same location.

    Police said they received a call at 11.59am stating that a man had been found lying on the slope outside Shing On House, Kwai Shing Estate.

    The man named Lee, was conscious when he was discovered. He was rushed to Prince Margaret Hospital in Lai Chi Kok.  He told a police officer "I have a lot of pressure looking after the elderly". Lee was thought to have jumped from the 16th floor window and landed on a tree before falling onto a slope in the nearby park.

    Officers then went to the flat from which he was believed to have fallen. An old woman was found on the bed. There were blood stains in the bedroom. The woman had cut wound on her head and neck. Her neck was cut so deep that it nearly fell off from her head. She was certified dead at the scene. Police found a cleaver underneath a table. In the trash can, they also found a pair gloves and a mask. 

    According to source, 34 years old Lee has been caring for his 77 years old mother who is confined to a wheelchair. Lee was a social worker but gave up his job to look after her mother since his father passed away 7 years ago. It is thought that after Lee has attacked his mother, he then jumped off from the kitchen window.

    A family tragedy has unfolded two days ago when an 8 year-old boy phoned a relative, telling her that he saw his mother set fire to herself. The relative phoned the police. According to source, the woman has burns to her chest and arms. In hospital, the woman insisted that it was an accident, she did not try to kill herself.

    43 years old Ms Yam who used to practice Chinese medicine in the mainland married her Hong Kong husband whom she met in Shenzhen 10 years ago.  While she was pregnant, the scan showed that her foetus has defects, but she continued with the pregnancy.  After her son was born, it was found that he has problems with passing urine and stool. Even after the surgery, he still needs to wear a nappy when going out. The boy has been in and out of hospital for treatment. The family then moved to reside in Hong Kong 5 years ago and Yam has been caring for her chronically sick son in Hong Kong. The family now live in Aberdeen.

    in 2014, Yam's husband left the family when he owed the money lender over i million (HKD) gambling debts.  As the family have not been residing in Hong Kong for 7 years, they are not entitled to claim any social fund even though she is a single mother. The family have been living in extreme poverty.  

    While Yam was in hospital having treatment for her burns, the reporter asked her son if he missed his father,  he replied : "He has left us, why should I miss him?". The police are investigating the incident.
