Taiwanese Man Hacks 4 Year-Old Girl To Death As Her Mom Fights Him Off
A Taiwanese man, Wang Ching-yu who was been treated in a psychiatric hospital in 2014 decapitated a 4 year-old girl with a cleaver while she went to see her grandfather, Monday.
He was also arrested for drug-related offences in 2006.
Taiwan police said the unemployed 33 year-old previously faced allegations of domestic violence against his mother for which he was receiving treatment.
The incident occurred at 11 AM on Monday near a subway station in Taipei as the child rode her bike while her mother accompanied on foot.
Yang Kun-ming, head of the investigation unit of the Taipei City Police Department’s Neihu Precinct said:
“The suspect slashed the girl’s neck with a cleaver. Her mother was next to her when this occurred, and she struggled with the suspect to try to stop him.
But the suspect was too strong and she could not stop him. The mother screamed for help and passersby rushed over to subdue the suspect, but it was too late.
The child already died.”
Yang Kun-ming stated that the man lived nearby and had bought the cleaver which he used to murder the child from a local store that morning.
Police intervention saved the cleaver-wielder from a lynching.
Video recordings showed the mob outside the police station raining vile abuses and getting aggressive to take over and beat him to a pulp.
