Yuen Long MTR Station was closed early on Sunday night following violent attacks on passengers in the station by groups of men all wearing white t-shirts.
But not long after the station closed, a gang of men forced open the shutters and ran inside.
Trains stopped calling at the station at around 11pm following multiple reports of gangs chasing and attacking people they saw wearing black clothes – the colour worn by many of those attending Sunday's extradition bill protests.
Videos posted on social media appeared to show men wielding sticks and throwing objects at other people inside the MTR station.
Some of those targeted used umbrellas to try to fight off their attackers, who even entered a train inside the station to beat passengers inside.
Other videos purportedly showed people being attacked in the street, while social media was flooded with photos of injured people, some with blood pouring from their heads.
Media footage later showed a large number of police officers wearing helmets inside Yuen Long Station. They were confronted by people who were angry with what they saw as a slow police response to the violence.
Democratic Party legislator Lam Cheuk-ting said he was one of those injured and was going to Tuen Mun Hospital for treatment.
At 11.55pm, officials said they were closing the station early for the night at the request of the police.
Less than half an hour later, violence clashes erupted once again just outside the station, before several men, also wearing white t-shirts, forced their way back inside the building.
The MTR issued a statement saying its control centre was made aware of the trouble at Yuen Long at 10.45pm. It said it contacted the police two minutes later, but was told officers had already been notified.
