A female Greek student in the Italian city of Turin sustained serious injuries after her former boyfriend stabbed her in the neck and chest on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old woman was attacked by her ex-boyfriend, a 27-year-old man of Albanian descent, who was apprehended by police shortly after the brutal stabbing.

The perpetrator cornered the victim while she was waiting for the metro in the northern Italian city, and proceeded to violently attack her in public.

According to reports by the young woman’s family, her ex-boyfriend barraged the Greek student with threatening messages after she broke off their relationship.

Speaking to Italian newspaper La Stampa, the victim’s sister stated:

“I never saw the perpetrator, I don’t know how they met. However, I know that he eventually became dangerous, extremely dangerous. He was threatening her on Instagram, writing that he would hurt her and kill her.”

Tragically, experts on domestic abuse and intimate partner violence warn that leaving an abusive relationship can be the most dangerous time for victims, as abusers often become extremely violent when they lose control.

Doctors are currently treating the young Greek student in the intensive care unit after she received emergency surgery for her life-threatening injuries.
