A 35-year-old knife-wielding Hong Kong man was arrested in Kennedy Town MTR station after he allegedly injured two commuters in Admiralty Station on Tuesday morning.

At about 8am, a Hong Kong man surnamed So, who was wearing a green jacket, got angry wen he was accidentally bumped by a 22-year-old local man surnamed Ng on a train, Apple Daily reported.

So demanded an apology but Ng refused. He kept chasing Ng, who got off in Admiralty, and scratched his neck and face.

A 27-year-old man surnamed Tam witnessed the incident and tried to separate the two men by pushing So away.
