A 53-year-old woman who stabbed herself in the stomach in an incident outside St Hilda’s Secondary School will be charged on Wednesday (Sept 21) for the possession of offensive weapons in a public place.  

In a news release on Tuesday, the police said that two knives were seized from the woman after her arrest on Monday evening.

The woman was allegedly holding and waving a knife along Tampines Street 82 and the police received a call at about 6.30pm regarding this.

During the engagement with police officers, the woman allegedly “brandished” a knife at the officers and used the same knife to stab herself in the abdomen.

The police said that despite verbal commands for her to drop the knife, the woman purportedly disregarded the officers’ instructions.
