Sources say police have arrested a 54-year-old man suspected of chasing a secondary school pupil at a Wong Tai Sin shopping mall with a knife.
A secondary school pupil filed a report around 1pm, saying a fellow student was being pursued by a knife-wielding man.
Police said the man and the boy he was chasing had an argument at a restaurant at Temple Mall South.
Neither of the children were injured in the incident.
This came a week after two women were stabbed to death at a mall in Diamond Hill, and a day after a woman was stabbed by Choi Hung MTR Station.
A suspect was arrested over the Diamond Hill attack and remains in custody.
