Man beaten and robbed in Shenzhen, seeked treatment in Hong Kong.
Beaten up for speaking English! A Hong Kong Chinese once studied in United States is used to speaking in both English and Cantonese. The day before when he went to a bar in Shenzhen speaking in English, someone started a verbal fight with him because he was dissatisfied with Chinese people speaking English. This Hong Kong Chinese reported that he was kidnapped by four security guards onto a car and beaten up by them, in addition his mobile phone was snatched away. After he returned to Hong Kong to file a report with the police, he was sent to hospital for injury examination.
The victim surnamed Shek (34 years old) who studied and worked in the United States for more than 10 years. Shek returned to Hong Kong six years ago, working as a sales manager in an electronic products company . Shek said that last Saturday night he went to a bar with 2 male friends, at which he met a Mainland Chinese man and two women. The six of them were drinking and chatting to about two o'clock the following morning until Mainland Chinese Public Security Officers came to the bar to check license that the six of them went to another bar.
When they got to the bar, Shek spoke in English to the staff to get a seat, but the staff got furious questioning him, "Why Chinese have to speak in English!" The two quarreled, and four security guards came out, holding Shek hostage onto a car, during which Shek was beaten in the car when car was driving, in addition his iPhone worth 7000 dollars was taken away from him. Twenty minutes later, the car parked in the barren hills and a man self-proclaimed as "Long Brother" suddenly changed his attitude offering sympathy to Shek asking, "Are you all right? We are only doing our job", "Long Brother" also handed cigarette to Shek, then let him off the car. Luckily, Shek's wallet had not been snatched away, so Shek took a taxi to file a police report who returned to Tin Shui Wai Police Station last night to in Hong Kong and went to the hospital for observation. Shek said, "When I was pushed into the car, I thought I'd be doomed, I was really frightened". Referring to the bar where he was attacked, the bar had pole dancing(strip-tease dancing), and he has been there three times, but he would not dare to go to Mainland China to hang out anymore.

A baby girl was abandoned on the shelves in a Tin Hau Parknshop, the baby girl was sent to hospital for tests
A newborn baby covered in blood still in umbilical cord was wrapped in newspapers and 2 plastic bags by 2 cold-blooded parents yesterday. She was dumped in a supermarket fruit shelves nearly suffocated to death inside the plastic bags. Fortunately, she was found in a timely manner, but after the girl was sent to Ruttonjee Hospital for tests she was later transferred to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in critical condition. Eastern District Crime Squad took over the case, and police looked through the supermarket's closed-circuit television tapes to look for those who abandoned the baby.
Baby was abandoned at King's Road in North Point on Hong Kong Island in a supermarket on Tin Hau Temple Road. Yesterday's 2:51 p.m., supermarket staffs returned to finishing the packaging of fruit and vegetables stalls, and they found a plastic bag wiggling with an object inside. They thought the object inside was rats, so they informed a security guard to assist. Security guard Mr. Chan immediately rushed to scene with a carton. However, once he opened the garbage bag, he saw something moving constantly inside the plastic bag, so Chan opened the large plastic bag and found another plastic bag. Curiosity motivated him to open the plastic bag, and he was stunned to find a bloody new-born baby inside the plastic bag wrapped with newspapers. So, security guard immediately turned to inform the higher authorities. Ambulance staff rushed to the supermarket, and examined the baby first. Baby was proved to be a girl, and was first sent to the Ruttonjee Hospital for medical examinations, and then transferred to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital for treatment and hospitalization.
Police believed the seriousness of the situation so the Eastern District Crime Squad was assigned to follow up and police looked at the supermarket closed-circuit television tapes to trace the ones abandoning the baby girl.
Mr. Chan, the security guard who found the abandoned baby girl was relieve to hear the girl was safe and sound, and sighed with relief. He was very angry saying that children are innocent, and did not understand why her parents were such a cold-blooded people to put the baby into two plastic bags, and subsequently putting her in another supermarket plastic bag. If it was not the supermarket staffs finding the bag odd and opened it to see, the baby might be trapped inside the plastic bags and died of suffocation. Those abandoning the baby was too cruel.
In November 2004 another case of abandoned baby occurred in a supermarket, to which a seven-month-old baby girl was being abandoned by her parents and grandparents who were responsible for the care of the baby were annoyed and irritated by the baby that they abandoned the baby in a supermarket cart outside of a supermarket in Yuen Long. Since the whole process was recorded by closed-circuit television cameras, the police was able to arrest the people.
