A naked 25-year-old woman fleeing a domestic dispute ran to a school in Tai Po in the New Territories on Wednesday and asked people there to help her.

The woman claimed she had been hit by her live-in boyfriend while she was taking a shower at an apartment in Tai Yuen Estate in Tai Po, the Apple Daily reported.

The woman fled without clothes and ran to a secondary school about 100 meters away and sought help. Teachers spotted her and immediately covered her body with jackets and called the police.

She had injuries to her eyes and was sent to a hospital for treatment. She told police that her boyfriend had poured kerosene on her and threatened to set her on fire. It was understood that the boyfriend was jealous after suspecting the woman of having an affair.

At 5 pm, her 36-year-old boyfriend turned himself in at the police station. He said he had a dispute with his girlfriend and they hit each other. He claimed he suffered injuries to his chest. He also denied using kerosene.

After an investigation, police arrested the man and the woman for alleged assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The investigation is ongoing.
