3rd June 2023 – (Hong Kong) A video clip from CCTV footage has gone viral online, showing a violent altercation that took place at a market stall. In the footage, a female employee of the stall is seen accidentally hitting a man in a white T-shirt and shorts with the lid of a foam box while she was sorting them out. This led to an argument between the two, with the man becoming increasingly agitated and eventually pushing the woman three times, throwing a foam box at her, and attempting to leave. However, the woman grabbed onto the man’s shorts, leading to a prolonged struggle between the two.
The incident occurred on the evening of 9th May at around 6.38 pm. The female employee was sorting out a batch of foam boxes on a cart, with several customers passing by. As she turned to retrieve another box, the lid of one of the boxes accidentally fell and hit the man in white. The man then kicked the foam box and subsequently kicked other foam boxes that the woman was carrying, while also verbally abusing her.
The woman, angered by the man’s behaviour, began to provoke him, daring him to hit her. The man responded by pushing her three times, and they then engaged in a physical altercation, with both parties grabbing foam boxes and vegetables from the stall to use as weapons. Eventually, the woman grabbed onto the man’s shorts, leading to a prolonged struggle between the two.
The video ends with the woman shouting obscenities at the man, causing him to flee the scene. It is unclear what happened after the video ended.
