The 35-year-old attacked his girlfriend in the early hours of Monday morning in Landskrona, southern Sweden, according to the TT news agency.

“He has stabbed his partner in the breasts so that the silicone has leaked out,” said Nils-Erik Svensson, of the local police to the Helsingborgs Dagbladet newspaper.

Police managed to arrest and detain the man at 2.30am.

The woman, who is in her forties, was taken to hospital in Helsingborg where her injuries have been labelled by the emergency services as “not life-threatening”, wrote the paper.

It is believed the couple was fighting before the stabbing, and that the first call was made to authorities at 1am.

Story continues below…

According to the officers, the man was already well-known by the police and had been for “many years” after repeated instances of violence.

The 35 year old man is now suspected of aggravated assault, and is set to appear in court on Monday.

ok so these are the advantages of breast implants :)

jokes apart, sweden really need to start giving out strict punishments. The lack of fear of the law is increasing the motivation of these criminals...

Is there such a thing as "Fake breasts" as described by this article?

A fake breast, must surely be that would be not real.

Whereas a enhanced breast is a real breast, thats simply been enhanced.

(retaining the original specs, but adding to it)

If I put a sock on, that doesn't mean I have a fake foot.

So getting a boob job didn't help this lady to find the right partner. She achieved the exact opposite result, it would seem.

So the man has been arrested for puncturing the woman's breast implants and not for stabbing her? The latter appears to be incidental in this story.

this has the elements for a Brothers Grim tale !!

And another thing; he will walk free as his intention was not to stab her but rather to puncture her breast which by dumb-Az Swedish justice interpretation is not a crime in itself. Este es un pais de tartamudos ;-)

@stonebridge #1 "Another excuse for the Local to use that photo again?"

That picture that they keep using always had me wondering. Why the heck is she all marked up for breast augmentation surgery? What is wrong with those breasts?
17:29 April 30, 2012 by Opinionfool
Or maybe she had a pair of those dodgy French PIP implants and no one would replace them. What better way would there be than to have someone puncture them so they have to be replaced.

If that is the case I say suspended sentence for unlicensed breast augmentation.

@entry: What is wrong with those breasts?

You need to feel/ stab them to know.

Knowing a little about Landskrona I bet the man is albanian and the woman swedish. Wouldn't give more than the money back I guess.

Lol ! the article became all about implants...............aha aha aha

It really does not seem that the man was stabbing to kill, he probably just want to do something painful physically and psychologically to the woman. You know how women are with their breasts, it's a source of pride if it is nice and a source of concern if flawed. I guess he succeeded in his quest.

What should a person who is evil and maliciuos to breasts be called, breast stabber... or breast destroyer ...

I can picture a film with the title, 'A man who hates breasts'.

Oh my, what a funny piece from thelocal. lol
