A 59-year-old Hong Kong woman was arrested for allegedly gouging out her elder sister’s eye in a flat in Causeway Bay on Hong Kong on Tuesday.

She was arrested and charged with assault, but her motive was unknown, Oriental Daily reported. The incident happened at 3 am when the sisters’ neighbor called police after hearing screams for help coming from the apartment in Kanfield Mansion in Tai Hang.

The woman had been sleeping in the living room when the attack happened. The middle sister heard the screams and ran out of the bedroom to stop the youngest sister’s attack. When police arrived, they found the oldest sister, aged 66, with her left eye pulled out.

Paramedics sent the victim to Ruttonjee Hospital in Wan Chai and later transferred her to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital for surgery. The suspect was also sent to a hospital for a checkup.

After an initial investigation, police classed the case as wounding and the crime investigation unit was following up. It was understood that three sisters lived in the apartment since 2005. Their parents passed away many years ago, Apple Daily reported.

The oldest sister was wheelchair-bound as had been suffering a spinal illness. The youngest sister was mentally disabled, but there was no record of her illness. The middle sister, a clerk, took care of her sisters without other people’s help.

  1. This is the right site for anyone who would like to understand this
    topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that
    I personally would want to…HaHa). You definitely
    put a fresh spin on a subject which has been written about for many years.
    Great stuff, just great!

  2. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your
    post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally?
    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on some of
    the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome weblog!

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

  4. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make
    your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links

    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

    I did however expertise some technical issues
    using this website, as I experienced to reload the site lots of
    times previous to I could get it to load correctly.
    I had been wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that
    I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will sometimes
    affect your placement in google and can damage your high quality score if advertising
    and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS
    to my email and can look out for much more of your
