Psychiatric test for man who stabbed his mother

THE man who stabbed his mother in the city's Pudong International Airport shortly after he arrived from Japan on March 31 was believed to have a mental problem and a psychiatric test has been arranged for him, police said this morning.

The motivation of his bizarre attack is still unclear.

His mother surnamed Gu has been transferred from the intensive care unit to an ordinary ward after her condition stabilized. She said her son surnamed Wang had been stressed-out after three years of study in Japan and she hoped he could be cured.

"He has been a good boy and we are always close to each other," Gu told the Xinmin Evening News today. "I don't blame him."

The attack happened around 9pm on March 31 soon after Wang walked out of the luggage claim area. Witnesses said Wang and Gu started a quarrel over Japan's high tuition costs and Wang suddenly pulled a knife from his luggage and stabbed Gu.

Gu said her son did not behave normal recently and always said someone was chasing after him.

"On March 29 I talked with him on the phone and he said someone was trying to kill him and then he started laughing," Gu said. "Afterwards, he couldn't remember he had laughed."
