A property deal gone wrong? What could this MTR assistant have possibly done to provoke such an attack?
Netizens are debating the subject after a video of the incident went viral.
In the 20-second clip, the uniformed staffer is seen pinned to the floor and being hit several times by a man in the Hung Hom MTR station.
The attacker was later identified as a property agent.
The men are shown wrestling on the ground as passersby stepped in to try to stop the fight.
Police later arrested the attacker while MTR personnel attended to their injured colleague.
Investigators said the property agent became angry after the MTR assistant asked him to stop soliciting clients inside the station.
A deal breaker — so that’s what it was all about.
