A 35 year old Kuwaiti woman allegedly stabbed to death a 43 year old female compatriot in Sabah Al-Salem. In a press statement, the Public Relations and Security Media Department in the Ministry of Interior said the suspect bought a knife at a supermarket in Sabah Al-Salem before heading towards the victim’s house.
Initial investigations revealed the two women were talking in front of the victim’s house when the accused took the knife and stabbed the victim several times on her chest. The suspect fled from the scene after the stabbing incident but later turned herself over to the police along with the murder weapon.
The victim tried to seek help from her neighbors who called the Medical Emergency Unit which dispatched paramedics. They took her to Adan Hospital where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.
