Knife-wielding man causes panic as he threatens ex-wife at Faro Hospital

A 65-year-old man was arrested this week for storming into Faro Hospital armed with a knife to allegedly threaten his ex-wife.

National tabloid Correio da Manhã says the man caused “panic” in the hospital late on Tuesday afternoon, threatening several people before finding his ex-wife, who works there.

However, she was able to alert the hospital’s on-duty police agent who disarmed and arrested the man.

According to CM, the former couple had been separated for around a month. The woman is believed to have been a victim of domestic violence and had already received death threats from the man who allegedly “did not accept their break-up”.
