Woman murdered in carpark of Shenzhen government building

Posted: 08/10/2012 7:00 am

A woman was stabbed to death by two assailants with fruit knives as she was getting into her car next to the Public Security Bureau (PSB) Building on Jiefang Road in Shenzhen, according to The Daily Sunshine.

The woman was attacked outside her BMW by two men who were trying to seize her handbag at 3:15 pm on August 8. She resisted and had her throat slit.

The men then ran off in different directions. When paramedics arrived at the scene, she was in a pool of her own blood and did not survive.

One of the assailants, a 24 year-old man surnamed Cao from Jiangxi Province, was arrested. The other escaped.

Many if not most expats in Shenzhen have set foot in Diwang Building as that is where the final stages of the visa application process take place.  One nearby resident expressed shock that such a thing was possible in such a developed area so close to a major government building.

On its microblog, the PSB said the murder had taken place in a “public” carpark, which technically it is, even though it is used by workers at Diwang Building.

The PSB is sparing no efforts to catch the other assailant, it said in a statement.
