This is scary stuff. Yesterday, a female CCTV reporter was attacked by an unknown man who supposedly chopped her nose off. Yuck! It was reported by microblogger @dad胡嘉海 (“dad Hu Jiahai”) that when the victim left the tv station’s building, she was approached by a man asking her whether she works there. When she affirmed, he attacked her several times with a knife he had hidden in a newspaper and then fled the scene.
The attacker, who’s believed to be from Liaoning Province, had already demanded to talk to a CCTV reporter in the morning but was chased away by police officers only to return again in the afternoon. The motive for the crime is not yet clear and the police are still investigating. The good news is that the womans cuts weren’t too deep – various reports say the nose may have been severely cut instead of actually hacked off. The bad news is that they still haven’t found the attacker, and CCTV employees are probably terrified to leave their offices. Better hide you noses guys!
