Tragedy struck at the social housing project in Minburi as a jealous 20 year old male, fatally stabbed his 19 year old girlfriend, out of fear she had another admirer. The stabbing incident, which shocked the community, occurred around 9.30pm yesterday. After attacking his girlfriend, the man attempted to evade punishment by leaping from the building, resulting in serious injuries.

Police Colonel Prasit, an investigator from Min Buri Police Station, reported that the victim was found to have been stabbed in both the chest and abdomen. There were also signs of a struggle, as evidenced by a bite mark on her left cheek. Along a pathway between the third and fourth floor of the housing project located on Ram Inthra Road, her body was found with critical bleeding, wearing sports attire and with a sharp folding knife, its handle taped red, nearby.

Meanwhile, the assailant, identified as Nutchanon (last name withheld), was found by the side of the building, having fallen into a water tank. Local emergency services promptly transported him to Serirak Hospital. Notably, Nutchanon was studying in 12th grade at a local school and was living with several relatives in the fourth-floor apartment at the scene of the stabbing incident. His girlfriend was known to frequently visit him there.

Rassupha Thepsa, the 51 year old building manager, stated that she had seen Nutchanon preparing to leap from the building, and tried to restrain him, suggesting he calm down as there were always solutions to problems. However, Nutchanon reportedly told her, “I can’t live anymore because she’s dead,” before leaping. Rassupha spotted the victim’s body thereafter in the walkway between floors three and four, reported KhaoSod.
