Two Hong Kongers arrested for trashing Taipei apartment

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Two Hong Kong women accused of trashing a room they rented in Taipei and stealing a flat-screen TV from the room were arrested at a hostel in Tainan yesterday.

Tainan police said the pair, surnamed Tsang and Yau, told the police that they planned to spend all of their money and then commit suicide in Taiwan. The pair were later transferred back to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office for questioning.

Prosecutors said the 20-year-old Tseng and 19-year-old Yau visited Taiwan on Jan. 12 and left the country on Jan. 15. However, the pair returned to Taiwan on Jan. 18 and rented an apartment in Daan District, claiming that they had been admitted to National Taiwan University and National Taiwan University of Arts.

The landlord of the apartment in Daan, surnamed Lin, on Feb. 26 discovered the two moving out from the place without paying the rent. Lin also found that a flat-screen TV was missing.

In addition, the two left garbage in every corner of the apartment, prosecutors said.

The pair claimed that they were accused of stealing a mobile phone in Hong Kong, a claim they denied, and that because they felt they were not trusted they came to Taiwan, Tainan police said.

The hostel owner in Tainan discovered the pair writing the words "Taiwan is China" on the walls in their room.
