Angela Tong Is Slapped By Attacker In A Wanchai Street

TVB artiste Angela Tong (湯盈盈) was attacked earlier today by a man in Wanchai's Spring Garden Lane area. As she passed by a shop at around noon, the man suddenly appeared and slapped her in the face. He then ran away and was chased by Angela's male assistants, who were with her at the time.

Angela and one of her assistants were injured in the incident and were taken to hospital for treatment.

At around 8pm this evening, Angela arrived at TVB City to continue filming for her series Housewife Stock God <師奶股神> and was met by reporters eager to find out more about the incident. She seemed very shaken and afraid as she recalled how suddenly it had happened and said that she had felt very faint and was suffering from headaches. She added that she did not know her assailant and did not know why he attacked her.

Angela said that she had just finished filming with Kiki Sheung (商天娥) and had been for some lunch with her. As she had some other work, she did not leave with the group and stayed in the area. She remembered that someone tapped her on the shoulder and then hit her in the face. As her assistants pursued her attacker, Angela said that she remembered some passers-by commenting that her ear was red from the impact, but she was too confused and could only feel herself quaking and crying.

As she still has work to complete, Angela said that she does not have time to rest, but when asked how she was feeling, she became quite emotional and said that she was still quite unstable. She said that she does not have any enemies, does not owe any money and does not know that she has upset anyone. Moreover she is not even dating anyone, so she does not understand why this happened.

Angela made a plea to the press to help look out for her because she feels very lonely and frightened on her own in Hong Kong. When asked about her physical condition, she said that the doctors have given her the all-clear and thanked everyone for their concern.

A 34 year old man has been arrested by the police and is being questioned about the incident overnight.
