Posted: 09/25/2013 4:38 pm

A 64 year-old woman is recovering in hospital after being found in a pool of her own blood near one of the entrances of Shipaiqiao Station on line 3 of the Guangzhou Metro at around 11 a.m. today, Guangzhou Daily reports. The man of about 50 who was seen stabbing her was subdued by a security guard and is being held for psychiatric testing.

The woman’s family say she was on her way to a hospital, which would explain why she had been carrying a copy of her medical history. According to the record, she was treated for a cerebral infarction early this year and had to see a doctor regularly.

However, eyewitnesses say they frequently see the woman begging in the station.
