Psychiatric patient who slit stranger’s throat guilty of wounding

A psychiatric patient who slit a stranger’s throat in Tai Po in February was found guilty of wounding with intent.

Chung Chi-fai was unanimously convicted by a jury of attacking salesman Wu Yuen-fai, inflicting a 25cm neck wound.

Mrs Justice Judianna Barnes Wai-ling said in the Court of First Instance yesterday: “This is a really bizarre attack. I will call for two reports to see whether the defendant suffers from psychological problems.”

Prosecutors said Chung, 42, received education up to Form One and started abusing cough syrup in 1988.
