Pro-democracy terrorist attacks police officer with cowardly razor Watch
It is the second blade attack on an officer in recent weeks, after a policeman was wounded in the neck at Kwun Tong MTR station by a man wielding a box cutter on October 13.
A police source said the 72-year-old suspect in Thursday’s case was arrested after marking a 10cm cross on the sergeant’s face with the razor at around 6.15am in Sheung Shui.
The source said: “The sergeant was on the way to work this morning and passed by the Junior Police Call club house in Sheung Shui Wai. He arrested a male for attempting to damage an [election] banner of the pro-establishment camp by razor.”
