SAT 17

Naked Run In the af­ter­noon, a 22-year-old man strips down at a bar­be­cue site in Sha Tin and goes for a run—in the buff. His be­hav­ior alarms passersby, and po­lice are called to the scene. They find the man on Lion Rock Tun­nel Road, but he makes a run for the hills. It takes the com­bined ef­fort of sev­eral of­fi­cers to bring the man un­der con­trol. He is taken to hos­pi­tal for as­sess­ment; po­lice have clas­si­fied the case as “loi­ter­ing.”

It is be­lieved that the man, who had pre­vi­ously been ar­rested for gam­bling, re­moved the cam­era be­cause he was un­happy with the court’s “ser­vices.”

Af­ter a two-hour ne­go­ti­a­tion with the man, of­fi­cers force their way into the cou­ple’s home. The cou­ple is sent to hos­pi­tal for a check-up.

TUE 20

What’s Cook­ing, Pussy­cat? A 40-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man ap­pear at Tuen Mun Law Courts for al­legedly at­tempt­ing to “use” the flesh of a cat. Ear­lier this year, po­lice of­fi­cers on pa­trol in Yuen Long dis­cov­ered the woman scorch­ing a dead cat with a blow­torch while the man skinned it out­side a vil­lage house. When ques­tioned, the man claimed they didn’t want to waste the body of their dead pet, and so had de­cided to feed it to their dog. The man has pleaded guilty to vi­o­lat­ing the Dogs and Cats Or­di­nance, while the woman pleaded not guilty, say­ing she had noth­ing to do with the death of the an­i­mal.
