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.

Huh? Why? So he didn't have anything better to do on a Friday night than force a man to drink soft drinks? I do hope he gets arrested for terrorising the elderly but seriously, his life is wasted unless he can turn his life around. Thumbs up for the passerby who reported it to the police.

that is pretty bad... I don't know why he would do things like that to the elderly... he deserve to be arrest for doing things like that... he probably have some mental problems...

He definitely had taken some kind of drugs.  The police should put him in jail for doing such thing to the elder.
