Protesters who took part in the the anti-extradition bill march from To Kwa Wan to Whampoa have marched on past the sanctioned route, setting stage for more weekend chaos.
Police had earlier said some of the protesters occupied part of Ma Tau Wai Road and To Kwa Wan Road. In a tweet, the police said a "gang of participants" took over parts of the roads and urged drivers to stay tuned to the latest traffic arrangements.
It also said the report room services of Hung Hom Police Station has been suspended temporarily.
But groups of protesters moved on towards the main areas of To Kwa Wan and some are reportedly headed to areas like Mong Kok.
Most of the protesters who took part in the march had stopped at the sanctioned end point at Whampoa MTR station. But some protesters left the main rally and headed into other areas.
Some protesters threw eggs, stuck flyers, and spray painted the walls of a workers’ club of the pro-Beijing FTU in To Kwa Wan. They said FTU are true rioters for their involvement in the 1967 leftist riots.
They also left some pineapple in front of the premises, symbolising bombs thrown by some 1967 rioters, which were locally known as pineapples.
Earlier another group had veered off to Hok Yuen street and threw eggs at the office of DAB lawmakers Starry Lee and Ann Chiang.
