The Singapore Police Force have issued a warning about a man, believed to be a Filipino’s maid ex-boyfriend, who used a 15cm paper cutter to slash his former girlfriend in the hands and throat.
SPF has warned that the man is dangerous and still at large. The vicious attack against his ex-girlfriend left her bleeding profusely with a severed windpipe.
According to eye witnesses, 38 year-old Pinoy maid Ms Allen Remedios was on her way home to Block 311, Tampines Street 33, when her ex-boyfriend stopped her, took out the paper cutter and slashed her repeatedly. She fled, bleeding and stumbling along the way leaving a massive trail of blood to her second-story flat.
Once she reached the door, she rang the door bell and alerted her flat mate, another maid, Ms Rose, living in the same unit, who was horrified to see Ms Remedios drenched in blood at the door.
“The cut on her left hand was very deep, and blood was gushing out of her throat,” the 25 year-old Ms Rose told the New Paper. “She said, ‘Sister, call boss’, and I shouted for our employer, who came running out.”
Her 40 year-old employer Mr Jose Mari Camacho rushed out to find Ms Remedios slumped on the floor. He grabbed a towel and told Rose to apply pressure on the injuries and called the police. He later ran out of the flat to try and find out who had slashed Ms Remedios, but the suspect had already fled the scene.
“She was still conscious and bleeding heavily. It was a very deep cut and I could see her trachea (windpipe) coming out from her throat, where blood was spurting out of,” Mr Camacho said of Ms Remedios after he returned to tend to her injuries. He also said that her wrist and thumb were deeply cut to the point where her finger and wrist were almost severed.
Ms Remedios was conveyed to hospital and is in stable condition, although she still cannot speak.
