A Filipino man leapt to his death by jumping from the seventh floor of an apartment building in Kuwait after reportedly stabbing to death his mistress to death.
According to Arab Times, citing Al-Seyassah, the incident took place in the apartment in Bneid Al-Gar. Security sources said rescue team led by the Assistant Undersecretary for Public Security Major General Ibrahim Al-Tarrah rushed to the scene after the Operations Room of the Interior Ministry got a distress call from the victim’s friend who said her friend had been killed by her own concubine.
Officers upon arrival found the lifeless body of the Filipino suspect on the ground in a pool of blood. The body of the victim was also found in her room. The remains of the Filipino man and woman were taken to forensics for autopsy.
According to a witness who shared the apartment with the Filipina victim, when she returned back home she saw the man holding a knife, prompting her to run out quickly after hearing the man making threats about killing her housemate.
She quickly notified authorities about the episode and later saw the man jumping from the window. The police have since been investigating direct and remote causes of the incident.
