An elderly woman at a Tai Wai housing estate has had trash piled at her front door, and unknown liquid poured, by a neighbor accusing her of spreading “atmospheric waves.”
In a Facebook post written last Friday, the woman’s daughter, Sami Chan, wrote that her mother has been disturbed by her downstairs neighbor for over a year. Her mother, surnamed Cheung, is 61 years old and lives alone in her apartment in Hin Keng Estate.
She also shared CCTV footage filmed on Oct. 22, which shows a masked woman pouring unknown liquid outside her mother’s front door and trampled on her doormat. She later brought in bags of trash and threw them against the elderly woman’s front gate.
According to Chan, the woman has been leaving objects outside her mother’s gate and pasting notes near the front door claiming that “atmospheric waves” emitted by her had “damaged her brain and severely affected her private life.” She also demanded that the victim “stop playing with atmospheric waves”.
Cheung had already tried contacting the building’s management and a district councillor serving the area, according to her daughter’s Facebook post.
She also went to the police with the CCTV footage showing the neighbor desecrating her front door, but authorities claimed that the black and white video was unclear and that the perpetrator’s identity could not be determined as she was wearing a mask, Chan added.
Chan lamented that she felt “totally helpless” towards the situation. “My hands were shaking as I watched the video,” she wrote.
According to HK01, district councillor Ng Kam-hung, who assists residents in Hin Keng Estate, said he had received similar complains from other residents, suggesting Cheung is not the only victim.
Ng reportedly visited the woman believed to be behind the harassment and said she appeared to be “extremely emotionally unstable.” He has also contacted the Social Welfare Department to assist the woman.
The police confirmed with Coconuts via email that they received a report from Cheung in the evening of Oct. 22.
In the email, police said that officers went to the estate the same night and suggested the victim contact her building’s management for assistance. They also said that they will increase patrols around the area and stay in contact with the management company in case further action is needed.
