He runs away because the entire group that smashed the China Life windows gets accused of being undercover cops. A group of 6-8 run down Tonnochy Rd to Lockhart. ... roughly in the direction of the police cordon.

Within about ten minutes the windows at HSBC on Hennessy Road get smashed too. After that, two people dressed as black bloc are seen entering a police cordon without being arrested. We haven't found video of the HSBC being vandalized at roughly 4:10pm.

finds it suspicious that police seemed to have moved their cordon line from Jaffe Road to Lockhart Rd at Tonnochy Rd, as if to receive the suspected undercover vandalism. 2nd photo is Tonnochy & Lockhart. Live map service 103hk shows them on Jaffe ten minutes earlier.

The events describes here happened about half an hour after the Hennessy Bldg HSBC had its windows smashed out. After passing a vandalized HSBC, some ppl start spraying graffiti at the Hey Wah HSBC 500m downstream of march direction at 4:40

This is the Hey Wah HSBC at 4:40 that led to tear has 15 minutes later. Undercovers suddenly emerge to arrest a handful of people spray painting protective boarding. iCable reports the undercovers came from inside the bank, though that's not clear.

Correction: this guy was an eyewitness, not a suspected UC. He wasn't part of this group that ran off.

More photos of the baton guy. He's part of the crew that ran to Lockhart Rd after being accused of being undercovers. You can see the riot police that had moved up one block in the far right of one of the final frames in the escape video.

If it was undercover agent provocateurs, the job was bungled because a) the baton, b) bad answers when confronted about it, so c) get followed on their retreat. Otherwise it would have been two flawless hit & runs on China Life and an HSBC with no live streamers nearby.

Yet if that's what happened, the operation 'worked.' Seeing a smashed up HSBC and China Life led some to think 'redecorations' were now OK for this march. Tear gas was fired an hour later b/c of that 500m downstream of march. Then the march was canceled.

Two molotovs and a portable butane gas cannister fell out of the bag left by one of the suspected undercovers.
