6th June 2023 – (Hong Kong) Luk Chun-chung, a police superintendent who served as the commander of the Sha Tau Kok Police District, has been charged with seven offences, including sexual assault, dangerous driving, and assault causing bodily harm. The charges stem from two separate incidents, one involving alleged sexual assault and the other involving dangerous driving and assault.

The 43-year-old defendant, who claims to be a police officer, was charged with three counts of sexual assault for allegedly assaulting the same woman, referred to as “X,” on three separate occasions in the restroom of a food centre in Fanling on 22nd and 23rd June, 2022. He was also charged with four counts related to a separate incident that occurred on 15th July, 2022, in which he is alleged to have driven dangerously in a car park in Fanling and assaulted X, as well as two men, causing bodily harm.

During the court mention at the District Court on 6th June, the judge granted a request from the defence to adjourn the case until 31st August to allow time for the defence to obtain documents from the prosecution and provide further legal advice to the defendant. In the meantime, the defendant remains out on bail.

According to reports, the defendant was on his day off when the incidents occurred, and he has been suspended from duty since they were reported.
