A sick and twisted individual was caught by the police yesterday after slashing and 82-year-old woman in Krabi.

The 52-year old Thai slasher who has already been reported to have psychological problems was arrested after he used a long knife to kill the 82-year-old defenceless woman who is named Wieng Imkasem.

The defenceless women was then rushed to hospital after sustaining serious injuries as a result of the attack. The Thai slasher, however, was also taken to hospital.
