At 20 o’clock on August 18, a middle-aged man wearing a red T-shirt with a Mandarin accent was surrounded by protesters gathered in the vicinity while passing the Golden Bell summer road. The demonstrators said that the man’s appearance on the scene was also a hit, so he surrounded him and shouted. During the period, there were also black men who rushed into the red man from behind and wanted to do it but were persuaded by everyone. The man in red explained it again and again, but he was still under siege for about an hour before he was able to take the subway.
On the evening of the 18th, a large number of demonstrators who participated in the Victoria Park parade gathered on the road near Xiayu Road and used laser lights to illuminate the walls of the Hong Kong government building and the police emblem on the police headquarters building in the distance. At 20 o’clock on the 18th, there was a disturbance on the north side of Xia’ao Road, causing a large number of demonstrators nearby to suddenly gather. Southern reporters can see from a distance that a middle-aged man in red is surrounded by a large number of black demonstrators, and from time to time a laser pen is shining on his face.
Some demonstrators said that the man photographed the scene and the scene was still beaten, so he surrounded him. During the period, some people used black spray paint to smear behind the red man, but some demonstrators shouted “Don’t beat people and let him go.”
Later, the red man took the elevator on the overpass, and the demonstrators used laser pointers to illuminate the elevator. After the man walked out of the elevator, a large number of demonstrators surrounded him and headed for the Jinzhong subway station. In the process, a black protester smashed the red man from behind and wanted to beat him, but was immediately stopped by other demonstrators.
From the crowd to the Admiralty MTR station, the red man still could not get out of the room and was again surrounded by a large number of demonstrators in the same place to ask for explanation. Due to the long distance and the noisy scene, it is difficult for Southern reporters to hear the specific conversations, but they can hear men using Mandarin and demonstrators to explain. During the period, the demonstrators also shouted insulting language such as “take off their pants”, which made the scene confused. Finally, after being blocked for about an hour, the red man was able to take the subway to leave.
