A 31-year-old Filipino domestic worker was injured after being attacked by a burglar she surprised in a flat on Prince’s Terrace in the Mid-levels on Hong Kong Island on Saturday.
The maid, named Miranda, heard a strange sound at about 4am and went to check things in the living room – only to find a man dressed in black standing in front of the kitchen in the Nikken Heights flat, Sing Tao Daily reported.
The burglar grabbed a bottle and hit the maid on the head before she yelled for help. Frightened and with her head injured, she rushed back to her room and locked the door while the burglar fled.
The maid was reportedly so shaken by the drama, it took her until about 9am – when her employer’s father surnamed Liu woke up and found a mobile phone worth about HK$1,400 (US$179) was missing – that she was able to tell him about her encounter with the burglar.
She was sent to a private clinic to get medical treatment for the injury to her head.
Miranda was understood to be working for Liu’s daughter-in-law, whose family lives nearby. She sometimes stays in Liu’s flat on Prince’s Terrace overnight, Oriental Daily reported.
The family reported the case to police at 4pm. Officers from the criminal squad at Central Police District are investigating footage from surveillance cameras.
The burglar was believed to have climbed up a water pipe and got into the kitchen, as it had no bars or grille on the window.
How come mr liu didn’t wake up from the bottles noise from hitting her and why she didn’t call a police whiles she’s inside her room it’s her chance to call the police or if there is a window from her room she can shout…. something is wrong in this I think.
lets waIt for the investigation and cctv footage..first
Why the maid not call a security or the police as soon us possible when she get in her room
Palaisipan naman case na ito,
Kung sakin nangyari yan di pwede magkulong nalang sa room
N waiting for miracle,,,
Nasa warto na pla xa bakit di xa dun nagsisigaw at humingi ng.tulong para khit paano my magising
I find these story so strange. If she was hurt and injured why did’nt she call for help? It is an emergency. You wont just locked yourself in the room! And wait till your employer wakes up. from 4am till 9? She did’nt do anything?.. where is her common sense? tsk!
Maybe the incident place is not her contract address and she don’t want to be questioned why she was in that place
MGA GIRLS BEFORE GIVING HARSH COMMENTS, READ AND UNDERSTAND THE CONTEXT OF THE REPORT. "THAT IS NOT HER WORK PLACE AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT", SO MEANING ILEGAL THAT’S THE REASON SHE CAN’T CALL A POLICE IMMEDIATELY.
Feeling ko, she’s hiding the truth?how come inabot pa ng 9am bago nalaman ng amo nya?you have your phone with you, obviously, sop dapat yan na hihinge ka ng tulong to somebody.. ang asa kabilang room lang ang amo mo, how come di ka makasigaw?haist, and inabot pa ng 4pm bago naireport sa police?tsk.. SAVAGE
Still, thanks God your safe ate ????????
Tawag siya ng 999 mabilis naman mga police ng responde
this case its look stranged the information that given by thr helper. its urgent help needed why she did not called the employer just in the other room to inform him immediately that someone unknown person enter the flat. why it takes so long before he inform her part time employer?. something was hidden truth on this incident from 4am to 9am it took 5hrs before you decide to tell the employer so stranged ha!. something really not right it was suspicious ha!.
ok its not her employer he can knock the door of the so called part time employer or called the part time employer to inform him that someone attack her inside the house and to think that she was injured. why waited 5hrs before informing?. is she plan first her alibi or excuses before telling the incident?. something was not right on it. as the thief will not stay more than an hour outside just to waited her to hurt her again. there was hidden agenda about this kind of incident.
shock and afraid surely cant make her think what to do.specially that she was hit already.
She might be traumatised.Shocked.
I was reading the comment and was surprise of some people reaction,by the way not all of us are the same,how we manage things etc.occasion like this the way she react is ok,di sya kagaya ng iba na maka react agad sa sitwasyon kayo kaya makakita ng magnanakaw iwan ko lang..just saying
Shocked or traumatised? People who got trauma cannot think what’s the right thing to do….
Grabe nman mka koment iba dto to think na kababayan mo ni wla nga proofs sa mga hinala nyo instead na pasalamat khit papano safety ung tao..pg isipan pa msama..Malay nyo kung takot na takot na pla yung tao at hndi na nkpag isip ng maayos..
some people react differently in every situation pero kahit delikado at nasaktan dpat gumawa sia ng praan makakuha ng atensyon pra nman me managot s nangyari s kanya
Daming matatalino. ????. Hindi mkapghintay mtaompos imbistigasyon bago pumutak.
My co filipinos be very careful and be alert anyone of us next time learn self defense would help and we can defend ourself in case it will happened to us too and ask our employers not to allowed us to sleep another house if itsnot your work address in this case it only give you more trouble in the future..just saying
She was "shaken"
Because she was too scared to do so?!
1.May be her phone was in the living room . She was charging her phone in the living room.
2. She was afraid that the burglar may be spying or hearing what she was going to do .
Anything is possible.
Cant figure out what took them so long before they bring their helper to the clinic since she is injured.being hit in the head is not a joke that u just can simply ignore..4am when it happened,then 9am when they bring her to the clinic????guess theres something wrong wth this I doubt it.
kaya nga,di kasi sa kanila nangyari kaya kung maka react ung iba…
Na shocked ung tao kaya hindi mkpg isip kung ano ang dapat niyang gawin! Madali lng magsabi ng “Kung sa akin nangyari yan” bk mas malala pa ang effect if ever! ????
E d hntayin mong mangyari sayio saka ka magmilaggo Sha chia hahaha..madalas KC nakakapagyabang Lang Ang Tao kc d pa ngyari sa kanya…..
