KUWAIT: A woman was arrested on several charges including attempted suicide and murder threats at the Bayan police station recently. According to a source, the woman had sent threatening messages to another woman who her ex-boyfriend had apparently left her for. After discovering that she was charged for threatening, the woman went to her foe’s house, stood outside with a knife in hand, called her and gave her the choice of either coming out or her barging in.
Police arrived within minutes in response to an emergency call, and they went in pursuit of the suspect who drove away at a high speed upon spotting patrol vehicles. After stopping at a roadblock, the woman pointed the knife at her chest and threatened to stab herself if approached. Firefighters were called and they managed to bring her under control after breaking the car’s window. She was taken to the psychiatric hospital after suffering a nervous breakdown during the incident.
