Three wounded in two knife attacks by suspected gang members

Three men were seriously injured in two separate attacks by suspected gang members on Sunday, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports.

A taxi was stopped by two private cars near the Kowloon Flour Mills along Kwun Tong Bypass at about 10 p.m.

A male passenger rushed out of the taxi but about 10 people from the two cars chased him and hacked him with knives.

After the attackers fled, the taxi driver called the police. The victim was rushed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he remained in criticial condition.

Police said the victim was a 24-year-old man surnamed Fung who has a gang background, Apple Daily reports.

One of the cars used by the attackers was found near Sam Ka Tsuen in Kwun Tong early Monday morning.

Meanwhile, two men suffered serious injuries in different parts of their bodies after they were attacked by about a dozen knife-wielding men as they were coming out of a sauna parlor along Nathan Road in Mong Kok at 10:53 p.m. Sunday.

The attackers had fled the scene when police arrived.

Police investigators said the two cases were gang-related, but whether both were linked to each other required further investigation.
