A woman has filed a complaint against the police alleging that she was raped in the Tsuen Wan Police Station, the force confirmed on Saturday.
“The Complaints Against Police Office received a complaint on October 22 from a legal representative, saying that his client was raped in the Tsuen Wan Police Station on September 27. Due to the seriousness of the allegation, the case has been referred to the New Territories South Regional Crime Unit,” police said in a statement shared with HKFP.
While details about the alleged rape are limited, Apple Daily – citing three anonymous sources – reported that an 18-year-old woman received an abortion at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Thursday.
According to Apple Daily, the woman was stopped when she was walking past the police station in mid-September, despite not wearing black and not protesting at the time. The woman was allegedly taken inside the station and gang-raped by four masked men, the sources said.

In one of the most gruesome videos to emerge from Hong Kong’s increasingly violent protests, an unidentified man was set on fire during an argument on the street in Hong Kong.
The older man, seen in the video wearing a green shirt, reportedly helped chase demonstrators from a train station as they worked to disrupt the Monday morning commute. As the crowd started to disperse, the man was filmed arguing with young people who appear to be supporters of the protesters.

Students at a Hong Kong university turned their graduation ceremony into an anti-government protest on Thursday by donning masks along with their caps and gowns.
The demonstration by graduates at the Chinese University of Hong Kong defied a government ban on wearing maskswhich was implemented last month to control protests that have turned increasingly violent.
The students were defending their rights to freedom of expression and speech — rights that they fear are being chipped away by Beijing’s control over the territory, Anson Yip, vice president of the university’s students union, told NBC News.”We are not controlling ourselves, we are controlled by the Chinese government. This is the cause of everything,” said Yip, 20, who is studying journalism and communications.Censorship by the government in Beijing is among the issues Yip said students are fighting against.
Prior to Thursday’s ceremony, students at the university had postered the campus overnight with slogans and messages calling for freedom of Hong Kong. Posters that were specifically targeted the Beijing government were removed by the morning by the university, she said.The university did not immediately respond to NBC News’ request for comment.
