Hong Kong (28/05 – 23.53) At around midnight today, a couple surnamed Cheung went to an illegal gaming console arcade located on the 3rd floor of 299, Portland Street in Mong Kok to collect a debt over HK$100,000 from a woman.
When they arrived at the premises, both the 46-year-old male and 59-year-old woman were assaulted. The man was slashed multiple times.
The female victim regained consciousness after nearly an hour, and found that her boyfriend was covered in blood, lying unconscious in a corner of the unit. She immediately called the police for help. When the police arrived at the scene, they found that the male victim had multiple stab wounds, and his girlfriend was also injured. The paramedics then sent the two to the hospital for treatment. The male victim was certified dead subsequently. It is reported that the male victim passed away after he was not rescued in time.
The police cordoned off the scene and found a knife suspected to be involved in the case in the unit. The case was classified as murder and was handed over to Kowloon West Regional Crime Squad for follow-up. Detectives searched nearby back alleys and garbage bins. During this period, a garbage truck tried to pick up a pile of rubbish on the side of the road, but was stopped by the police.
