Ukranian refugee arrested over Ham Tin break-in

A 21-year-old Ukranian has been arrested over a break-in in Ham Tin in October.

The man, who has sought asylum in Hong Kong, was arrested last week on Pui O Beach, where he had been in living in a tent.

Police say he smashed a window to break into a Ham Tin home between October 4-9 last year.

The house was unoccupied and no property was stolen, police said.

Police located the man with the help of local residents.

He has been charged with burglary and remanded in custody.
