A baffled African student found himself the lead runner in a knife chase around his apartment building in Wenzhou City in March, Netease reports.
The student, Andy (a pseudonym), was in his apartment when his landlord Hai Bo knocked on his door and shouted at him in Chinese, “Was it you who seduced my wife? Or did she seduce you?!” Andy had only been in China for a few months and didn’t speak any Chinese. He tried to explain that he couldn’t understand, infuriating the already incensed Hai Bo, who stabbed the confused foreigner.
Much like a scene from The Shining, Andy ran to a bathroom on the second floor with Hai Bo hot on his heels brandishing his knife. Andy was left with multiple stab wounds in the head, neck and arms.
Hai Bo was taken to a psychiatric hospital a few days after the incident. According to police, he’d been suffering from severe schizophrenia for almost a decade, and has made a hobby of chasing after people with a knife for no reason.
We hope Andy has made a full recovery and started learning some Chinese, particularly the helpful phrase “dude, it wasn’t me”.
