Man involved in seafood restaurant fight turns himself in

A 61-year-old man who was involved in a fight in a Hong Kong seafood restaurant last week surrendered to the police on Thursday after a video of the bizarre incident surfaced on social media.

The man was taken to his home in Jat Min Chuen public estate in Shatin district as police pressed their investigation.

The incident occurred after a customer complained about a baby carriage blocking the way, sparking an argument with another customer that turned ugly, according to reports.

In the widely circulated clip, a man is heard boasting about his triad connection during the altercation. He then pours hot water from a teapot on the customer and uses it to attack him.

People are heard yelling “stop fighting” as the attacker continues to hit the fallen man.

In the aftermath, chairs are strewn across the floor, suggesting the attacker had accomplices. 

A restaurant employee called the police but the attacker and his accomplices had left the premises. 

Police are looking for two suspects involved in the fight, the report said.
