Murder in Castle Peak
     Police are investigating a murder case in Castle Peak last night (August 5) in which a 70-year-old man died.

     At about 8.50pm last night, Police received a report from a pedestrian that a man was found injured and collapsed on Hoi Chu Road.

     Police officers sped to the scene and found the 70-year-old man sustaining multiple injuries to his body. He was certified dead at scene.

     Meanwhile, Police officers found a 30-year-old suspicious man on Hang Kwai Street. When officers attempted to intercept him for investigation, he fled away immediately. Police officers have reasons to believe that the man has just committed a serious and violent crime and attempted to evade an arrest. With no other alternatives, police officers gave verbal warnings and presented pistols. Police officers subsequently subdued the man on Hoi Wing Road. The man sustained neck and hands injuries and was sent to Tuen Mun Hospital in conscious state.

     Initial investigation revealed that the 30-year-old man assaulted the deceased with sharp objects. Police arrested the 30-year-old man for murder. He is being detained for enquiries.

     A folding knife, a dagger and an axe in suspected connection with the case were seized inside the backpack of the 30-year-old man.

     Post-mortem examinations will be conducted later to ascertain the cause of death of the deceased.

     Active investigation by the District Crime Squad 2 of Tuen Mun District is underway.

     Anyone who saw the case or has any information to offer is urged to contact investigating officers on 3661 5718 or 9020 6557.
