Woman slashed in Spider-Man attack
(STANDARD) 11月 08日 星期四 05:30AM Police are hunting for a Hong Kong "Spider-Man" in connection with a brutal attack on a young woman. Police said the wanted man, aged 22 - a former boyfriend of the victim - was wanted in connection with a sex offense and had jumped bail while awaiting trial.
The 22-year-old victim, whose throat was slashed and who sustained multiple chop and stab wounds to her neck, chest and stomach, was admitted to United Christian Hospital in a critical condition.
Police believe the attacker had used a rope to rappel from a window on the 25th floor stairway of a public housing estate in Lam Tin into the victim's bedroom one floor below, shortly before 3.30am.
The victim's mother and young sister told police they were awakened by sounds of an argument followed by screams.
They were shocked when they broke into the victim's bedroom to see her covered with blood and the attacker, armed with a blood-stained knife standing beside her, police said. The attacker then dashed to the window, grabbed the rope and scaled down to the seventh floor before making good his escape by climbing down a water pipe to the podium.
They also told police the attacker was wearing mountain-climbing gear.
According to police, the woman had been chopped nine times in the neck.
There were also stab wounds to her chest and stomach. Police searching the vicinity were believed to have recovered a rope suspected to have been used by the attacker.
At the height of the search, tracker dogs led police to a nearby man-made slope where police suspected the attacker had been hiding.
But there was no sign of the wanted man.
