A mainland Chinese woman was injured after climbing out a window and jumping to the ground with a man when police raided a building in Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui on Wednesday.

At 4 pm, a man and a woman were captured by the public in a video and photos when they climbed out the window of a subdivided flat on the second floor of a building on 2A Prat Avenue in Tsim Sha Tsui, Apple Daily reported.

The man climbed on the pipes to the first floor, then grabbed the metal bar of a shop lightbox before jumping to the ground and escaping.

The woman tried to follow the man, but when she climbed to the external wall of a flat on the first floor, she stopped. Then she grabbed the air-conditioner brackets with her hands for a while before falling down and hitting the sidewalk. She suffered injuries.

Passersby reported the case to police. The woman, aged 29 and from mainland China, held a two-way entry permit. She was sent to a hospital for treatment.

The two climbed out of the flat during a vice raid in the building. Sex workers were reported to be in the subdivided flats in the building.

Police were investigating any breach of the conditions of stay of the woman and her relationship with the man who escaped.
