Man held on rape charge

POLICE yesterday arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with the alleged rape and detention of a 22-year-old woman in Tsz Wan Shan.

Officers were told that the victim had had drinks with the suspect at a Tsim Sha Tsui bar on Monday night.

The woman was later taken to the suspect's home in Tsz Wan Shan Estate, where she said she was sexually assaulted.

The victim also told police that she was detained by the man in the flat for a night and was not freed until yesterday.

The woman telephoned her boyfriend after she was released and he reportedly asked her and the suspect to meet for talks in Kowloon City that afternoon.

The talks apparently broke down outside a Fuk Lo Tsuen Road bank and a group of police officers were alerted by the row.

The trio were later taken to Kowloon City police station for questioning.
