Ko Hla Zaw Thein, 37, stabbed her with a 12-inch knife, po­lice said, af­ter she asked for her money back. He was up­set that she had made the de­mand in public. The woman was sent to In­sein Hos­pi­tal and the sus­pect is be­ing charged with an of­fense that could re­sult in up to 10 years in prison.

Af­ter in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the sus­pects were also linked to a stabbing of a man on Kan­daw Gyi Pat Road.
