Tongan Chinese Embassy call for more “Police presence” after woman brutally attacked

The Chinese embassy in Tonga has called for more Police efforts after a Chinese woman was brutally attacked early Thursday morning.

A spokesperson for the embassy said the attack had been one of the most recent brutal assaults against the Chinese people in Tonga.

Ellen Yu, aged in her late 50s, was hospitalised after an intruder entered her residence in upper Railway Road, Nuku’alofa at about 3am.

She was reportedly in critical condition and could not be able to speak.

June Wang from the embassy said the stick used to “commit the crime was even broken”.

“The perpetrator is extremely cruel to ruthlessly attack a woman of over fifty years old. The stick used to commit the crime was even broken”, June said.

“The victim suffered extremely severe wound.

“Currently the police [are] trying to catch the perpetrator who is still at large.

“The Chinese embassy hopes that police presence could be increased so that the criminal can be arrested and brought to justice as early as possible”, June said.
