The video, which has gone viral on Facebook, showed the incident which happened on the MTR Tuen-Ma Line train.

A woman, dressed in white, was seen trying to separate them a few times and it is believed that she is the girlfriend of one of them, according to Dimsum Daily.

The suspect, Hyun, was arrested for alleged assault causing actual bodily harm on the Kowloon Tong station's platform at around 9.44pm on Christmas Day.
