Cryptocurrency promoter turns up in Kowloon neighbourhood for another stunt on Sunday but is detained as soon as he steps out of luxury car
A Hong Kong man was arrested on Sunday in connection with an incident a day earlier in which at least HK$6,000 (US$769) in banknotes was tossed from the top of a building in the city's poorest district.
Police detained the suspect in Sham Shui Po at 4pm as he stepped out of a luxury car in preparation for another stunt.
On Saturday video footage filled social media showing bundles of hundred dollar bills raining from a building in the Kowloon neighbourhood while a frenzied crowd tried to lay their hands on the money.
The incident was preceded moments earlier by a man stepping out of an expensive car and asking onlookers if they believed money could fall from the sky.
The stunt was said to be connected to a cryptocurrency the man had been promoting.
