Following on from last week's Michael Bay 'Aircongate' incident, a second alleged extortion attempt has taken place on the Hong Kong film set of "Transformers: Age of Extinction".

According to a government statement, a production crew member was setting up on the roof of a building in Kowloon on Tuesday when four men "intimidated her and asked for money."

She called the cops who arrested a 35-year-old man. He is being held pending further inquiries, while a police anti-Triad unit has been brought in to investigate.

This follows on from last week's arrest of two brothers who allegedly demanded $13,000 from Michael Bay and attempted to assault him.
