Talk about over-sharing. A 17-year-old teen from Hunan on January 27 reportedly stabbed a woman in the face, stole her money, then returned to an internet cafe where he posted to QQ that he had just committed a crime and ‘things went really well’.
This teen surnamed Cai, who ran away from home after having a fight with his parents, said that a mood swing led to him committing the crime.
Before leaving, Cai bought a knife and gathered up money to access an internet bar. The next morning, he casually posted to a QQ group: “See you later guys, I’m going to commit crime.”
According to police accounts, Cai went to a park and sat on a bench looking for a target. He spotted a middle-aged-woman walking to the bathroom with a large bag, and he got up and followed her.
Cai attacked the woman and stole the money from her handbag before running away. In the process, he stabbed the woman in the face with a knife, but due to overexert, it was broken into two pieces.
The teen then returned to the internet bar as though nothing had happened and updated his whereabouts to QQ group, saying: “Things went well, though killing people isn’t very easy.”
He later surrendered himself to the police.
