Seoul Gangseo Police Station said Monday that it has launched a probe into a 61-year-old real estate agent surnamed Lee after booking them for hurting a rival agent.
Lee is accused of stabbing a female real estate agent in an apartment complex in Magok-dong, Gangseo-gu, Seoul around 10:40 a.m. on Monday.
The victim was sent to hospital, suffering injuries to her face and the back of her neck. The suspect injured themselves after committing the crime and was also sent to hospital.
The two allegedly had a conflict over a client’s real estate contract.
Police are considering charging the suspect for attempted murder and are set to conduct a further investigation once Lee completes treatment.
