A female MTR staff asked a mainland Chinese man to move away from the escalator as he was obstructing the traffic on the railway platform. This incident happened yesterday on MTR East Rail Line. He then hit her and threatened to report to police for alleged offensive treatment. During the entire ordeal, he reiterated that he was from Hong Kong with a Chinese accent.
The man then proceeded to board the train despite being told to stay as police were on the way. His action irked other passengers on board who kept telling him to alight from the train as service was disrupted.
