According to a police spokesman, the two victims were sent to Ruttonjee Hospital. The building’s security guard, named Kam Fai, 73, sustained hand and leg injuries and the police officer, whose name was not disclosed, sustained a leg injury.
At the end of Saturday both the security guard and the police officer had been treated and discharged from hospital.
It is the latest in a series of incidents involving wild boars appearing in unexpected locations over the past several months. Conservationists explained that dwindling food supply and construction near natural parks, which may be forcing wild animals to search for food in the city, may make sightings more frequent.
