    A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his 49-year-old father with a meat cleaver following a dispute about money in their Mong Kok flat. Police and paramedics were called to the flat on Canton Road just after 5pm on Sunday after receiving a report about an injured man.

    Chung Chi-ming, assistant Mong Kok district commander, said the Nepalese man was found unconscious and had sustained multiple injuries to head and legs which appeared to be fatal. He was taken to Kwong Wah Hospital in Yau Ma Tei and died just after 1am on Monday. The man’s eldest son, 32, was arrested at around 10pm after an investigation showed that he had tried to borrow money from his father, leading to a dispute, Chung said on Monday morning. “We believe he used a meat cleaver to attack his father. The flat showed signs of fighting and was full of blood, which we believe belonged to the [father].” The son worked as a construction worker and lived in the same flat with his father. Police also seized the knife they believe was used in the attack from the flat.

    It was the second knife attack in as many days in Hong Kong. On Sunday,

    A husband and wife were fighting for their lives on Sunday night after a lift they were in shot up and crashed into the top of its 46-storey building. 

    The man and woman, both aged 32, entered the lift on the ground floor of Block 2 of Waterside Plaza at about 4pm, according to the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department. The estate is on Wing Shun Street, Tsuen Wan. The lift reportedly ascended quickly until it hit the top of the lift shaft, seriously injuring the couple. The compartment’s ceiling was crushed downwards. Another passenger had been in the lift just before the accident, but got out on a lower floor, reportedly the 16th. Firefighters were called to the scene and rescued the pair from the compartment.

    The man and woman were seen conscious when sent to Princess Margaret Hospital, in Kwai Chung, but their conditions were later stated as critical. A spokesman from the department said the suspension cables were still intact after the smash, and the department was still searching for what went wrong. The lift involved was out of use.

    The estate, which opened in 1991, is run by Sino Group. The company said it was concerned about the incident and would arrange for the contractor to thoroughly examine the lift, as well as cooperating with the investigation.

    Hong Kong singer Edmond Leung Hon-man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after he crashed his Mercedes-Benz into a roadside railing in Hong Kong in the early hours on Tuesday January 23. Leung has been banned from driving for two years, ordered to do 160 hours of community service, and fined HK$1,500 (US$190) after smashing his Mercedes-Benz in a drink-driving crash.

    Edmond Leung Hon-man, 46, was nearly five times over the legal limit when he

     into a private residence in Mid-Levels, at 1.50am on January 23. The Canto-pop singer escaped injury, but his black Mercedes was seriously damaged. A subsequent breathalyser test conducted at the scene found Leung had 104 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, against the legal limit of 22mcg/100ml. A second test at a police station less than an hour later put the measurement at 80mcg/100ml.

    Under caution, Leung admitted to police that he had consumed red wine and whisky before driving the vehicle, which he subsequently crashed after driving up Garden Road, turning right on to Robinson Road, and then ramming a six-metre-long railing and the boundary wall of Garden Terrace. Leung pleaded guilty last month to one count of careless driving and another of driving a motor vehicle with alcohol concentration in breath above the prescribed limit. 

    Prosecutors said Leung “failed to pay due care and attention to exercise proper control of his vehicle”. In mitigation, the singer’s defence lawyer said the accident took place when Leung dropped his phone while driving, after having a drink with his wife. Leung recalled that he had needed to drive home because he planned to pick up his father the next morning. The lawyer argued that his client had a good driving record, with only a fixed penalty fine in the past. It was also revealed that although Leung had since apologised to the public in newspapers, that had not stopped him from losing advertising jobs.

    Magistrate Veronica Heung Shuk-han had adjourned sentencing pending reports on the suitability of unpaid community service. She adopted a recommendation for 160 hours after receiving a positive reports. Leung was further fined HK$1,500 and banned from driving for two years. The star did not comment outside court after the sentencing. Careless driving is punishable by up to a HK$5,000 fine and six months’ imprisonment, while drink driving carries a maximum fine of HK$25,000 and three years’ imprisonment.

    A 36-year-old woman was arrested on Saturday for attacking her elderly father with a chopping knife in Chai Wan. 

    The man, 83, suffered serious injuries to his head and hand after a suspected dispute about “family issues”, a police spokeswoman said. Police were called to the family home on A Kung Ngam Road at 8.30am. “In the heat of the dispute, it is suspected the daughter assaulted her father with a knife,” the spokeswoman said. Officers from the Eastern District were seen taking away a chopping knife and a blood-stained metal walking stick. Pools of blood could be seen outside the entrance of the housing estate where it was thought the attack took place.

    The father was taken to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Chai Wan and was in a stable condition. The daughter was arrested for wounding. It was understood the woman’s mother also lived in the flat, though a younger brother had moved out.

    “Pop star, actor and director Leslie Cheung Kwok-wing plunged to his death from the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Central in an apparent suicide last night,” ran the story in the South China Morning Post on April 2, 2003, reporting the Canto-pop star’s death 15 years ago.

     – fell from the 24th floor window of the hotel and was found lying in Connaught Road at 6.41pm. He was rushed to Queen Mary Hospital where he was certified dead on arrival.” As word of Cheung’s death spread, female fans arrived to lay bouquets near the spot where their idol fell. “Cheung, who was gay and lived with his banker lover in Kadoorie Avenue, Ho Man Tin, shot to fame when he was runner-up in ATV’s Asian Music Contest in 1976,” the story said. “My first reaction on hearing the news about Leslie Cheung was sheer disbelief. His death just wasn’t possible; it was an April Fools’ joke that was in extremely bad taste,” wrote a Post reporter, echoing public sentiment, in the same day’s paper.

    On April 3, the Post reported that Cheung had arrived at the health centre of the Mandarin Oriental soon after 4pm on April 1. He went straight out to the balcony through a glass door, where he sat alone and ordered a glass of orange juice. The juice and a glass of water were delivered from the hotel’s coffee shop. “There were another two or three empty tables at the balcony and the glass door was covered with curtains so that no one could see what he was doing outside the health centre,” a source told the Post. “About an hour later, he returned to the health centre and asked one of the receptionists for a pen and paper, which he used to write his [suicide] note.”

    The note was not addressed to anyone and began with the word “Depression”, the source said. “In it, he expressed gratitude to his closest friends but did not reveal why he committed suicide,” the Post reported. “After sitting alone quietly for about two hours, Cheung is believed to have put the suicide note in his pocket, climbed over the waist-high balcony railing and jumped to his death. It was soon after 6.30
