A Hong Kong woman has been found guilty of assaulting a police inspector by hitting him with her breasts during a protest on March 1.
Thirty-year-old protestor Ng Lai-ying was convicted of two counts of assaulting a police officer and one count of common assault at the city magistrates' court on Thursday.
"You used your female identity to trump up the allegation that the officer had molested you. This is a malicious act," deputy magistrate Michael Chan Pik-kiu said, according to South China Morning Post.
"It must have been a big deal for you had you been indecently assaulted," he said, according to Shanghaiist.
Police officer Chan Ka-po claimed that the accused used her breasts to bump against his right arm during the protest. Ka-po also claimed that her breasts caused an injury to his chest, according to Real Hong Kong News.
The magistrate also found Ng's boyfriend, Kwong Chun-lung, 20, and university student Poon Tsz-hang, 22, guilty of obstructing police officers who were exercising their duties, according to South China Morning Post.
The sentence invited sharp reactions on Twitter.
Magistrate's comments suggest bias. Breast on cop's arm = assault, but cop's hand on breast ≠ sexual assault? WTF? https://t.co/jMQdzoz377
