A savage attack against a 20-year-old Greek student in the northern Italian city of Turin was perpetrated by her ex-partner.
27-year-old Jetmir Kurtsmajlaj stabbed his ex, a 20-year-old Greek student, several times.
According to the Italian La Stampa, Kurtsmajlaj, originally from Albania, allegedly wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend as he had written threatening messages on Instagram in recent days.
The 20-year-old Georgia Kaltsouni was born in Lesvos.
Kurtsmajlaj attacked her in the middle of the street with a kitchen knife.
He managed to hit her in the neck and abdomen.
In fact, the Kaltsouni was hospitalised in a serious condition in Molinette and underwent a long operation during the night, while the 27-year-old was arrested by police and is facing charges of attempted murder.
Several eyewitnesses saw the attack and said the girl on the ground and a "tall blond young man was kicking and hitting her."
Another said he noticed the young man holding the knife in his right hand and stabbing the young woman several times near the neck.
The sister of the Greek student said:
"She told me in a message that she was with him, revealing the point where they met on Sunday afternoon. At 5 p.m. he told me that everything was fine and she would call me later."
"Late in the afternoon, the police came to my house and told me that my sister was seriously injured and in hospital. I never saw the perpetrator, I do not know how they met," she continued.
"However, I know that he had become dangerous, terribly dangerous," she concluded.
Doctors said after the six hour surgery that it is expected for her to make a full recovery.
