Livestreaming with her fans at the time
The incident happened on 10 September at night, May5w was engaged in casual conversation with her viewers about tram timings and whether they had missed the last tram due to its tardiness. The atmosphere was relaxed, and viewers were enjoying the virtual tour of Hong Kong through her stream.
As May5w continued her livestream, a man dressed in black approached her. He seemed initially interested in the tram schedule, striking up a conversation with her.
May5w, being the kind-hearted person she is, offered to guide him to the train station when she decided to take the train instead.
Unwanted Advances and Discomfort
However, things took a dark turn when the man began making inappropriate physical contact. He placed his arm on her shoulders without her consent.
May5w, feeling uncomfortable, promptly brushed his arm away and attempted to distance herself from him. The situation escalated when the man grabbed her arm and insisted that she come with him.
May5w firmly and repeatedly told the man “no” as she proceeded to enter the train station. Desperate to escape, she was then cornered by the man who pinned her against a wall and telling her that he is alone.
She then retorted that she was not alone as the entire event unfolded live on her Twitch stream, much to the horror of her viewers who urged her to flee from him.
The situation deteriorated further as the man could be seen groping her from behind and attempting to kiss her face as she tried to fight him off.
When the man momentarily ceased his assault, she seized the opportunity to escape, running towards a passer-by and shouting for someone to help her.
The incident unfolded live, and May5w’s viewers were horrified by what they were witnessing. They immediately urged her to run and call the police.
Following the incident, the police were alerted and began investigating the matter. The video evidence and May5w’s livestream provided crucial information for their inquiry into the man’s actions.
In the wake of this distressing encounter, May5w received an outpouring of support from her viewers and the online community at large.
The next day, May5w did another live stream to provide updates on the incident and shared that bruises that she suffered during the incident, saying that the man was holding on to her too tight and her bruises got worse.
However, she added that only the man is at fault here and not the country of Hong Kong.
The police are also trying to reach out to the woman as they commence investigations into the incident.
