Pushing and shoving reporters, police chased citizens with batons on mall escalator, risking the possibility of a stampede.

At around 5pm on 10th November 2019, when citizens were leaving through the escalators, they were chased by a number of riot police with batons. As the escalator was still functioning, this action from the police nearly caused a stampede in the dangerous scene.

Besides, standing at the end of an escalator, several police officers yelled at the reporters on the escalator, ordering them to move downstairs on an escalator going up. After arriving at the escalator end, the reporters were pushed and shoved hard by the officers, and were forced to go downstairs using the escalator.
