HONG KONG

Hollywood director Michael Bay was attacked and slightly injured Thursday on the set of the fourth installment of the “Transformers” movie series currently filming in Hong Kong, police said.

A Hong Kong police spokeswoman said two brothers surnamed Mak who own a shop near the film set approached Bay and demanded 100,000 Hong Kong dollars ($13,000).

When Bay refused to pay, they assaulted him, she said.

The brothers also allegedly assaulted three police officers who were called to the set.

The spokeswoman said Bay suffered a minor injury to his face but declined medical treatment.

She spoke on customary condition of anonymity.

The two men, aged 27 and 28, were arrested and face charges of blackmail, assault and assaulting police officers, she said.
