A man from Sichuan province has been detained by police after attacking and stabbing a woman who he’d met online. The man reportedly had posed as a wealthy businessman on the internet to meet the woman, an underwear model, at a hotel. After he’d tried forcing himself on her, he stabbed her in the neck then robbed her. Doctors say the woman may now be paralyzed from the neck down.
According to a Nandu.com report, on December 8 the man, Zou, posted an ad online under the name “Chengdu Tuhao” (Chengdu nouveau riche guy) claiming that he was a super-rich man in the Jade business looking for an attractive woman. He was able to trick a young part-time underwear model named Guo into talking with him. After exchanging contact information, the two reached an “agreement”: Zou would pay Guo 60,000 RMB a month if she would be with him.
The next night, Guo and Zou met at the hotel room he had provided, but she was suspicious when she stepped in the cheap room. Immediately, Zou requested to have sex with her, and when she declined, he waited until she fell asleep then forced himself on her, only Guo fought back.
Zou took out a sharp weapon and stabbed Guo’s neck. “Then she stopped fighting back,” he said to police. Afterwards, Zou raped Guo twice, took her phone and bank cards and made her tell him the PIN. Finally, after Guo had begged, Zou left 5000 RMB for her to go home.
On December 11, the owner of the hotel found Guo laying on the bed in the room, surrounded by blood. Police and an ambulance arrived at the scene not long after. “It was very messy,” police said.
Police were able to track down Guo’s bank cards that were being used to withdraw money. They were also able to pinpoint Zou and his real identity: a 28-year-old village secretary from Fushan, Zigong, Sichuan province.
Police went to Zou’s hometown and arrested him in the early morning of December 19. “It was too much pressure for me living here,” he said. “I wanted to go out and do something to release my pressure.”
As of now, Guo is still in intensive care being treated for the large wounds on her neck. Doctors have said that there’s a chance she will be paralyzed from the neck down.
The report reads:
Guo, now laying in the hospital under intensive care, must be regretting what she has done. She came all the way from Shanxi province to Chengdu looking for a rich boyfriend, only find herself facing the risk of near total paralysis. Instead of making any money, she has now lost all her savings too.
