Press Release


     A staff member at Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre was attacked by an inmate on remand today (November 2).

     At around 11.15am today, the inmate suddenly grasped the right hand of a Principal Officer (PO) and bit his finger when the former was being cautioned for breach of prison discipline. Despite that another officer assisted to stop him, he attempted to attack the PO again.  After warning was given to him but was in vain, OC foam was applied against him and he was subsequently subdued.

     During the incident, the PO sustained injury to his right hand finger. He was sent to Caritas Medical Centre for medical treatment.

     The case was reported to the Police.
