The police acted swiftly and arrested a 36-year-old man on charges of “loitering” later that evening. The suspect claimed to be a medical personnel. Upon apprehension, the police discovered that he was wearing a female school uniform at the time of the incident, and they also found accessories such as wigs and socks used for impersonating a student.

The Serious Crime Unit of the Sham Shui Po Police District reported that they received a report from a secondary school in the Cheung Sha Wan area. According to the report, a teacher discovered a man wearing the school’s female uniform on the premises at approximately 12.30pm yesterday. As soon as the teacher noticed the individual, the man quickly left the school grounds and disappeared. The police immediately reviewed the surveillance footage within and around the school, leading them to the identification of the vehicle used by the suspect. It is believed that the suspect infiltrated the school during the lunch break before the incident occurred.
