SINGAPORE - A woman was walking home alone at Clementi Avenue 3 at 2am on Thursday when a man robbed her of her handbag.
According to Lianhe Wanbao, 32-year-old massage therapist, who wanted to be known only as Jessie, was walking down a pedestrian bridge when she was targeted by the robber.
He attempted to grab her handbag.
Thinking she could save her belongings, she held on tightly to her bag and refused to let go.
She then screamed for help.
However, she did not expect the robber to pull out a knife and stab her repeatedly. The assailant stabbed her three times and ran away when he managed to get the handbag.
Fortunately, passers-by came to the aid of Jessie, who was bleeding profusely by then.
She suffered stab wounds to her waist, lungs, and liver.
She is recuperating after a 10-hour surgery, but is still in weak condition and is unable to speak.
