Four people were injured during a knife attack outside a Hong Kong mall on Sunday, including a local politician whose ear was reported to have been partially bitten off.
The attack happened outside the City-plaza mall in Tai Koo, where pro-democracy protests took place earlier in the day.
Witnesses said the Mandarin-speaking attacker drew a knife after a political argument with people in the mall, which was the site of pro-democracy protests earlier in the day.
Four men, including the alleged attacker, and one woman are now receiving treatment.
Hong Kong’s protests began in March. They were sparked by widespread opposition to a controversial extradition bill that would have allowed extradition to China.
