Stabbing lands woman in hospital, man in jail

A 30-year-old jilted lover from Battambang was arrested in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Monday, after he stabbed his former girlfriend in the back.

The man was furious because the woman had taken up with another man and wanted to end their relationship.

He had purchased a knife and gone to the victim’s home where a row broke out and he attacked her, injuring her badly enough she had to be hospitalised.

The attacker tried to escape, but was arrested by police.
