A GIRL aged 10 was chopped on her head as she was walking across a basketball court with her grandmother, it was claimed in the District Court yesterday. Chan Mo-yin had an eight-centimetre wound that needed stitches after she was allegedly attacked by Siu Chi-fai, 33. Siu, unemployed, pleaded not guilty to a charge of wounding with intent on July 15. Prosecutor Niall Stirling said the girl was walking home with her 71-year-old grandmother, Shum Fung-sin, in Ho Man Tin at about 9 pm when a man approached using foul language. It was claimed he then struck Mo-yin with the chopper. The girl and Mrs Shum screamed and the attacker ran away. Siu's mother and sister told police that he had left home with a chopper at about 8.30 pm. The victim later picked him out in an identification parade. Philip Wong, defending, said it was dangerous to attach too much weight to the victim's evidence. He said it was difficult for the girl to identify her attacker because it happened so quickly and in poor light. Judge Caird adjourned the case until today.
