Police-triad collusion in North Point, police arrived four hours late at assaults on citizens from gang members
Dozens of white-clad gangsters armed with wooden sticks gathered around Ming Yuen Western Street. They started an attack on the passing protesters then ran away. Four hours later the police finally came, and they said that their late response was because some protesters had been surrounding North Point police station.
However, according to witnesses’ statements as well as video proofs, no protesters were outside the police station at the time when the police received a report of the attack. At least one police car was seen leaving the station soon after the call, but it was heading in opposite direction moving away from the scene. Another video showed that several police cars had already been parked along Island Eastern Corridor and they were not going to handle the case.
