Police have arrested a man for luring a 5-year-old girl into a disabled toilet, where he molested her and reportedly requested that she give him oral sex.
According to HK01, the girl had just finished school on Monday and was being taken to a tutorial center at Tin Chak Shopping Center by a friend’s mother, whose parents had appointed to escort their daughter as they were busy.
But the friend’s mother only walked the girl to the lift area in the mall, trusting her to go up by herself.
Instead of heading to the tutorial center, the girl ended up wandering around the mall for an hour and striking the fancy of a stranger who noticed she was alone.
The stranger brought her to the park to play, and as she let her guard down, lured her into a disabled toilet near a housing estate. He proceeded to grope the 5-year-old and request that she give him oral sex.
After that, the man fled, leaving the girl in the toilet.
At the same time, staff at the tutorial center called the girl’s mother to inform her that she did not show up for class. The mother rushed to look for her and eventually located her near the tutorial center.
She reported the incident to police, and officers arrested a 30-year-old man in Tin Shui Wai Tuesday after reviewing CCTV footage.
Citing the young age of the girl, police say they are highly concerned about sexual assault cases and treat this incident very seriously.
Police reiterated that indecent assault is a crime, and that offenders face up to 10 years’ imprisonment.
