The suspect involved in the assault case of Internet celebrity Aga Tsai and his pregnant wife has been arrested, along with an accomplice and the hammer he used. The auto shop worker confessed that he didn't know Mr. Tsai, merely having exchanged words online. He found Tsai's attitude "arrogant and provocative".
This evening (March 5), we arrested a suspect surnamed Chen and a male surnamed Tung in New Taipei City's Linkou District. We also found the assault weapon. The entire case has been transferred to the Shilin District Prosecutors' Office to investigate and prosecute. The suspect surnamed Chen said he got into an online disagreement last summer with the Internet celebrity surnamed Tsai and that's why he was seeking revenge.
Tsai filmed a video after the incident to give to the police as a reference. He said he did not offend anyone. However, according to the confession of the suspect, he thought Tsai's opinions in a video regarding auto parts was arrogant, which is why he decided to attack him. The police intend to charge the two suspects with assault.
