26th January 2022 – (Hong Kong)  A man with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) was suspected of masturbating on the train at MTR Admiralty Station in the early hours of 17th September 2022. Police officers stopped him at Sai Ying Pun Station and arrested him. The man was charged with one act of outraging public decency.

After his arrest, he claimed under caution that he was only urinating. The security guard involved in the case earlier pleaded guilty to outraging public decency and was sentenced this morning (26th) at the Eastern Magistrates’ Court. The defence pleaded that the defendant had improved after receiving treatment from a psychiatrist, and hoped that the court would give the defendant a chance. The Magistrate finally accepted the probation officer’s suggestion and sentenced him to one year of probation, and he has scheduled to review the defendant’s progress report on 27th April.
