|Six injured in stabbing fiasco, councilor got part of ear bitten off|
A knife-welding man has injured at least four people in Taikoo shopping mall Cityplaza, including Taikoo Shing district councillor Andrew Chiu Ka-yin who has part of his ear beaten off.
The Putonghua-speaking man had an argument with a family over political issues, before he took out a knife and stabbed a woman and her husband, according to the woman's sister. The sister was also punched by the man.
During the fiasco, Chiu got part of his ear torn off with his teeth. The body part was kept in a plastic bag.
Others tried to stop the man and ended up beating him in retaliation.
All five, aged between 29 and 48, have been sent to the hospital. Two men were in critical condition, a man and a woman in serious condition, and the remaining man in stable condition.
Another man who tried to defend the knife welding man was also injured.
Earlier in the day, police have made arrests inside Cityplaza for the first time after a restaurant was vandalized.
Masked protesters started gathering inside the mall starting 5pm, chanting slogans in a largely peaceful assembly. However, masked mobsters vandalized a restaurant, triggering the arrest at around 6pm.
Apart from Taikoo, officers have entered several malls today to make arrests, including New Town Plaza after protesters vandalized facilities at Sha Tin MTR station.
They also entered Tai Po Mega Mall after protesters vandalized Yoshinoya.
