A 19-year-old woman in the southern province of Adana has stabbed a 27-year-old man after he allegedly abused her on a transit bus.
The man is under treatment at a hospital and is in critical condition.
The incident occurred early Aug. 30 on a highway in the Çınarlı neighborhood. The woman, identified with only her initials as A.D., accused H.Y., a man who was sitting in a seat behind her, of sexually harassing her.
An argument started between the two after the accusation and the driver forced them out of the bus on a highway when the argument got out of control.
The woman reportedly took out a knife from her purse and stabbed the man in the chest after they got off the bus.
H.Y. was hospitalized after the incident and A.D. was taken into custody by the police.
Prosecutors have launched an investigation into the issue.
