According to Oriental Daily, a female tourist from New Zealand went to the police suspecting she had been raped after she woke up in the street with sharp rectal pain following heavy night of clubbing in Hong Kong‘s Lan Kwai Fong district.
Police initially feared it there could be a serial rapist active in the area. Their investigation ended abruptly however, shortly after the victim was sent to hospital for medical examination… and diagnosed with broken haemorrhoids. As the bleeding was caused by a pre-existing medical complaint, rather than non-consensual sodomy, the police dropped the investigation.
The 26-year-old Kiwi cosmetics saleswoman had come to Hong Kong on a business trip. She headed out for a taste of the city’s famous nightlife only to wake-up lying stretched out in the street at 3am. Feeling sharp pains in her rear and not remembering how she had come to be on the street the woman became distraught, convinced that she had been raped.
After she appealed for assistance from hotel staff, police were called and on arrival promptly put the woman in an ambulance to the nearest hospital for a forensic examination.
On inspection the doctors concluded that the pain and bleeding were due to a nasty case of ulcerated haemorrhoids. The now probably extremely embarrassed Kiwi was taken back to her hotel by police who then filed the case as a mistaken accusation.
