Knife attack after break-up

Knife attack after break-up
Arriesgado pleaded guilty to the attack.

A transgender woman attacked her boyfriend with a knife, scissors and a fork after he "unfriended" her on Facebook and changed his status to "single".

Filipino William Hanz De Veyra Arriesgado, 25 - who has had a sex change but cannot alter her name under her country's laws - left her Australian lover with stab wounds to his abdomen, a district court heard yesterday.

Bank worker Colin James Peady, 47, also suffered cuts to other parts of his body, including his face and eyes.

Arriesgado will be sentenced on Oct 17 after pleading guilty to causing grievous hurt.
