台灣留學生在紐約圖書館被無故毆打 外交部:與美警方保持聯繫並提供必要的協助

(記者林偉呈報導)台灣一名女性留學生在美國紐約圖書館遭到陌生人無故毆打,頭部受傷並流血。她在Dcard網路平台上發文抱怨撥打外交部的旅外急難救助專線後,僅收到一位移民律師的電話,對外交部感到失望。對此,外交部今天發布新聞稿,說明駐外處在積極協助處理該事件的相關情況。

外交部發布新聞稿表示,台灣駐紐約辦事處在5月19日接獲當事人的急難救助電話後,除立即表達慰問和關心之外,還詳細了解事件經過和當事人的需求和協助要求。在過去幾天裡,駐紐約辦事處多次致電關懷當事人,並與紐約市警察局(NYPD)保持緊密聯繫以追蹤此案。

外交部表示,在駐紐約辦事處持續努力下,紐約市警察局已催促負責該地區的分局盡快調查此案,同時要求圖書館保存監視器畫面以供查閱。紐約市警局的調查人員將繼續與當事人聯繫以進行後續調查工作。駐紐約辦事處已第一時間將這些進展情況轉告給當事人,同時關心她的身心健康康復情況,並得到了當事人的感謝。

外交部強調,非常重視海外僑胞和留學生的安全,同時譴責任何形式的暴力行為。駐紐約辦事處將繼續與當地警方保持聯繫並提供必要的協助。外交部也呼籲在美國的台灣僑民、留學生在遇到涉及人身安全的緊急事件時,除採取個人保護措施外,請立即與當地執法機構或最近的台灣駐外代表處聯繫尋求協助。

 

@niksvalerie ❗️❗️If you see this woman in New York City please be careful❗️❗️ My friend and I went to the 5th floor bathroom of the New York City Library (Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library) on 5/17 at 7:15pm. While we were in the bathroom, a woman was silently staring at us from the corner of the bathroom . As we were leaving the restroom, she randomly hit my friend in the head so hard that my friend’s head bled and caused my friend to mentally breakdown. A few security guards came over and called the police. When the woman came out of the bathroom, all the security guards did was tell her she wouldn’t be allowed back into the library. ❗️NOTHING FURTHER. ❗️ Then the woman tried to get on the elevator and leave the library. Unfortunately no one helped me stop her from leaving except me. The security guards continued to watch and tell me to calm down. They also kept saying that they had no right to do anything because of legal issues. The lady slowly left the library with no issue. I am extremely disappointed in the lack of effort shown by both NYPD and security of the NYC Public Library. #fyp ♬ original sound – Niks✨
