Girl arrested for ‘indecent assault’ on police officer

An 18-year-old girl has been arrested in Hong Kong on charges of assaulting a police officer and for possession of illegal drugs, Apple Daily reported.

The girl, who bears the surname Ko, was said to have been drinking beer and chatting with three men on the staircase of Aberdeen Centre at midnight Wednesday when some police officers approached the group and asked for identification cards.

According to the report, the girl took offense at being questioned.

She cursed the officers at first and then threw beer at them, before finally kicking a policeman in the genitals.

A scuffle ensued which saw a total of three officers getting injured.

When Ko was eventually subdued, the police searched her handbag and found 44 pills inside.

The girl claimed that the drugs, which were suspected to hallucinatory substances, had been prescribed by a doctor. She also shouted to the officers that her father is a policeman.

She was then taken to a police station and charged with assault on police and possession of illegal drugs.
