Viet­namese work­ers get hit with eggs in Tainan

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Sep­a­rate as­saults on Viet­namese work­ers were re­ported two days in a row in Tai­wan’s south­ern city of Tainan, rais­ing con­cerns from their em­ploy­ers, the po­lice said Satur­day.

A Viet­namese worker was struck by eggs on April 15, while an­other three were as­saulted in a sim­i­lar fash­ion the fol­low­ing day, the po­lice said.

Sur­veil­lance cam­era footage showed that the at­tack­ers, who are likely to be a group of 5-6 young peo­ple, rode mo­tor­cy­cles to fol­low the vic­tims into al­leys dur­ing late hours.

It is likely that the at­tack­ers are lo­cal peo­ple who are familiar with the streets, the po­lice said.

The work­ers de­clined to press charges, but the po­lice said it is fol­low­ing up to ap­pre­hend the crim­i­nals.
