TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Taipei restaurant founded to provide employment to Hongkongers was defaced Friday afternoon (Oct. 16) by a masked person armed with a bucket of excrement.

At around 12 p.m., a masked individual entered the Hong Kong protest-themed restaurant 保護傘 (Umbrella) Aegis and made a beeline for the kitchen. Staff told Apple Daily that before they could react, the intruder emptied the bucket's contents, splattering the interior and on-duty manager with what seemed to be chicken feces.

Witnesses said they believe the individual was most likely a man, according to the report. The restaurant stated that its losses were considerable and the cutlery would have to be discarded.

The eatery has filed a report with district police, and it announced on Facebook it would close for the rest of the day and Saturday (Oct. 17). As of Friday evening, the staff were fully engaged in the clean-up and unable to give an interview.    [FULL  STORY]
