A woman who allegedly stabbed three men before “sucking their blood” has been arrested in Kenya.
Margaret Wambui Wangari is accused of stabbing one man to death and critically injuring two others during a rampage in Kahawa West, Nairobi.
According to police, the violence started after a fight broke out between the suspect, who was armed with a kitchen knife, and a man believed to her boyfriend.
After two men tried to intervene and separate the couple, Wangari is believed to have stabbed them, before allegedly proceeding to “suck the blood from open stab wounds sustained by the three victims”.
The country’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations said three men were fighting over the woman before she pulled out a sharp object and stabbed one of the victims in the ear.
“Passers-by found the suspect sucking blood from open stab wounds sustained by the three victims,” police said, according to Nation.
And cops saved Wangari from a furious mob of onlookers who took matters into their own hands and started stoning her.
“Officers rushed to the scene, just as outraged members of the public were about to lynch the suspect, who had further inflicted a serious cut at a second man’s forehead,” police said in a statement.
The two remaining survivors, who were left unconscious, were rushed to the Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi where they were treated for serious injuries to their neck and chest.
The suspect remains in custody on suspicion of murder as officers continue to piece together the evidence.
