Prosecutor initiates compulsory psychiatric treatment of Chinese man who stabbed fellow patient
The Budapest prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday that the 38 year-old suspect strangled a fellow patient in a hospital in Budapest’s 6th district on March 13 and injured the hand of a nurse with surgical scissors. He then walked to the Covid ward next door and repeatedly stabbed a female patient who was unable to defend herself, causing her fatal injuries. He also injured one of the security guards who stopped and disarmed him.
The man is currently receiving preliminary compulsory treatment.
