A Syrian youth murders a woman in Metn after attempted rape

A 16-year-old Syrian boy slit an elderly Lebanese woman’s throat after he attempted to rape her in her own apartment in the the Metn town of Dahr as-Sawan.

The boy, identified as W.H., confessed to murdering the 77-year-old woman after she resisted his assault, the National News Agency reported on Friday.

“He said he tried to rape her… She resisted and asked him to leave her apartment, but he hit her on the face, after which she lost consciousness,” the report said.

It further added that the perpetrator “dragged the unconscious victim to her bedroom and decided to kill her, because he feared she might report him to the authorities.”

“W.H. brought a kitchen knife, slit the woman’s throat and then wiped his fingerprints off the knife.”

According to the NNA, the Internal Security Forces Information Branch and the Broumana police department uncovered the identity of the assailant after launching extensive investigations. The crime was re-enacted on Friday, the report added.

It also said that the assailant lived in the same building as the victim, who was only identified as G.S.

    they should at least have a law preventing kids under 18 to enter for work in the country. not saying a 50 year old man could not do the same…… I know most come with parents but should be illegal. we have public schools in Lebanon. My natoor in Lebanon sends his kids to a public school and the work part time in the stores and restaurants but at least graduate high school.

      impossible to stop sick people from committing sick acts, cause usually they are pretty normal till they go and do something like that. whether syrian/egyptian/jordanian/pakistani etc… or lebanese it doesnt matter the boy is evil and should be punished severly for what he did, like hard labor till the day they hang his ass. why bring political issues into this? this was a crime against humanity not country.

    Criminal and immoral minds exist in every country, and are of any age/race/religion/social-strata.

    A sickness of humanity – period.
