    Police say they're treating a petrol bomb attack on Tai Po police station as arson.
Police say ‘rioters’ threw four Molotov cocktails at Tai Po Police Station on Sunday night, including at the reporting centre which was open to the public at the time.

In a brief statement, police did not mention any casualties, or whether people had actually been inside the reporting centre, but condemned the ‘rioters’ act, saying they had completely disregarded public safety.

It said the petrol bombs also struck the station’s parking lot, and added that officers are investigating the matter as a case of arson.

It added that services at the reporting centre at Tai Po Police Station have been suspended as a result of the attack, and urged the public to dial '999' if they're in need of assistance.
