$600,000 offer for info on trio in cop stabbingTop News | Erin Chan and Mandy Zheng 23 Oct 2020
Police are offering a HK$600,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of three men who stabbed an off-duty officer outside Kwai Chung police station last August.
The reward was announced in a Facebook post yesterday, attached with a CCTV image showing three masked and black-clad men.
Police said that at 11.18pm on August 30, the trio attacked the officer from behind with sharp objects at a bus stop across from the police station on Kwai Yi Road, leaving the officer with multiple injuries.
The trio then fled via the pedestrian subway on Kwai Yan Road.
Police said they are searching for three men aged between 20 and 30. Among them, one is about 165 centimeters tall and slightly fat, whereas the other two are about 180 centimeters tall and of thin build.
The case has been classified as wounding with intent.
Li Kwai-wah, then senior police superintendent of the organized crime and triad bureau, said last year that the injured officer did not have debt issues and his work performance was well-received.
Li said the attack was suspected to be related to the social unrest because of the suspects' black dress code.
Meanwhile, two men were arrested on Wednesday at a Yuen Long mall protest in memory of the July 21 Yuen Long incident.
The two men - Shek, 27, and Ma, 30 - were arrested for acting with a seditious intention in Yoho Mall. They were under detention for questioning yesterday.
Protesters shouted anti-government slogans such as "Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times" at the mall at about 7pm on Wednesday. About 50 police officers showed up to make arrests.
