A startled man called the police in the middle of the night Monday when he discovered a stranger in his house—only to realize that the helpless man was his sister’s boyfriend.
Well, that’s one way to find out that your sibling has a new significant other.
According to police, a 39-year-old surnamed Leung called the cops just before 1 am, saying there was an intruder in his home at Fung Shue Wo Village in Tsing Yi.
When his sister found out about the misunderstanding, he hurriedly explained that the man is her boyfriend and that she had invited him over.
Police arrived at the scene and interrogated the 40-year-old man, surnamed So. In clips filmed by an Apple Daily reporter, he is seen sitting on a step outside the house gate in a white t-shirt, shorts and slippers as he fielded their questions.
Officers confirmed that the man is not a burglar. The case, initially filed as a robbery, was re-classified as a misunderstanding.
Nobody was injured in the incident, and no property damage was recorded.
