Police arrest one for stabbing foreign transgender woman in Tbilisi

Georgian law enforcers have arrested one individual for stabbing a foreign transgender woman in a massage parlor in central Tbilisi late on October 31.

The woman died at the scene, while another employee of the massage centre, who was also stabbed by the same 23-year-old man, is now undergoing treatment in a clinic in Tbilisi.

Doctors say that the health condition of the patient is stable.

Massage centre employees told journalists that the deceased woman was a 38-year-old Thai citizen who came to Georgia two weeks ago.

They said that three individuals came to the massage centre on Sunday and left after some time.

However, one of the three individuals, who was allegedly denied a particular service, returned with a knife and stabbed the two.

Police did not say whether the detainee is a citizen of Georgia, only stating that he was arrested in Tbilisi

The man has been charged with premeditated murder which is punishable by seven to 15 years in prison.
