Yesterday a man in Zhengzhou slit his girlfriend’s throat at a busy intersection in the city, then cut his own wrist and passed out at the scene before being picked up by police.
According to eyewitnesses, the man cut the throat of a 20-year-old girl, said to be his girlfriend, and then continued stabbing her four more times until she died at the scene, NetEase reports.
Shortly after the attack, the man cut his own wrist and passed out at the scene. Ten minutes later, police arrived and sealed off the area. The man has been sent to hospital.
The local residents told reporters that the couple’s relationship had recently been strained and that this was likely a reason for the attack.
Earlier this year, a man from the same city jumped from the 30th floor of building after slitting his ex-wife’s throat and died at the scene.
