TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — When taking her mother out for dinner last night (Feb. 22), a woman was suddenly attacked by another woman with a knife, severing her finger and slashing her stomach open.

Last night, a 68-year-old woman surnamed Lin (林) was exiting her vehicle on her way to buy takeout in Tainan’s South District, when she was suddenly assaulted by a woman in her 30s wielding a 15-centimeter-long knife. The suspect stabbed Lin four times, causing her to sustain gruesome injuries, including a severed right finger and a gashed stomach, which exposed her intestines, reported Apple Daily.

Lin is currently listed in critical condition, while the suspect fled the scene. Police immediately began scouring the community and reviewing surveillance camera footage to try to track down the assailant.

Lin’s relatives told the police that the victim had lived abroad for many years and had recently returned home to visit her 92-year-old mother for Lunar New Year. The victim had been staying in her sister’s house in Tainan’s East District.    [FULL  STORY]
