At about 11 p.m. on Friday (March 13), a 23-year-old man identified as Wang Ping-hua (王秉華), allegedly stabbed a motorist at the intersection of Zhongzheng Road and Minquan Road in New Taipei City's Xindian District. Wang reportedly had become engaged in a heated argument with his wife over where they were planning to eat before grabbing a 20 cm sashimi knife and using it to inflict mortal wounds to a random bystander sitting on his scooter next to the sidewalk.
The incident occurred near New Taipei's Xiulang Bridge, where Wang, after arguing with his 26-year-old newly married wife, surnamed Hsu (許) in their car, suddenly leaped out and stabbed a 33-year-old man surnamed Lin (林), reported Liberty Times. Lin suffered a fatal loss of blood, and after he was rushed to a nearby hospital, doctors were unable to resuscitate him.
