A domestic helper who alleges her employer scalded her arm with a hot iron was treated for burns yesterday. She told police her 74-year-old female employer had carried out the alleged assault when she ignored her calls as she ironed clothes in her Tsim Sha Tsui flat. The incident came less than two months after employer Liu Man-kuen, 33, was jailed for 18 months after she ran a hot iron across the back of her maid's hands as punishment for scorching a piece of clothing. The employer in yesterday's incident was arrested and the iron seized as evidence. Imelda Cacatian, 40, said she was ironing clothes in the storeroom of the 10th-floor flat in Ocean View Court, Mody Road, at about 11am. 'Her employer called her several times, but she ignored the calls. She was scalded on her right forearm with the iron by her employer. Her arm swelled up and part of the skin was peeling off,' a police spokesman alleged. Police were called and Ms Cacatian was treated and discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The employer was questioned last night and later released on bail. Two months ago, Liu was found guilty of inflicting grievous bodily harm on Achacoso Warly Cabaneros at her Tai Hang Road apartment in Causeway Bay on February 25. Eastern Court heard how Liu became enraged after Ms Cabaneros scorched her camisole. Liu told her to put her hands flat on the ironing board and pressed on them with the iron, telling her: 'This is payment for what you have done.'
