The police said it received a report from the MTR Corporation on Friday and the case is now being followed up by the crime unit from Kwai Tsing police district.

According to a preliminary investigation, officers believe the video was filmed between 2017 and 2019 and was uploaded online on January 12.

Police said they also saw other videos and photos online of a man taking a selfie while masturbating in a train carriage on the South Island Line and another man exposing himself in Shau Kei Wan station.

The men involved in the videos are suspected of outraging public decency and indecent exposure, the police said. They added that the person who uploaded the video is suspected of publication of obscene and indecent articles.

No one has been arrested so far, but police said the investigation is still ongoing and arrests could be made later.

An MTR spokesman said the company did not know the source of the video and when it was filmed, adding that they did not record such an incident or receive any reports.

The spokesman said the Tsing Yi operations control center reported the case to the police as soon as the company saw the video and the company will assist the police in their investigation.
