A man went on an attacking spree with a kitchen knife in Shenzhen’s Baoan district, leaving one dead and five injured. One woman had her nose cut off. The attacker, surnamed Zeng, was arrested by two police officers shortly after the attack.
Zeng, 21, is originally from Jishui, Jiangxi province. According to media reports, he came to Shenzhen’s Longhua district, then Shajing district to seek employment in late December last year. He started showing signs of mental instability after being rejected many times. Police conjectured that his motive for the crime is his frustration of not being able to find a job.
