Tainan Police Identify Man Who Tied Knife to Slide 台南公園溜滑梯綁刀傷童案 嫌已過世

At the end of May, a watermelon knife tied to a slide in a park in Tainan's Annan District injured a child. The police launched an investigation, viewing footage from over 100 security cameras. They determined this was the doing of a 75-year-old man. However, when they went to arrest him, they discovered he had already passed away.


Police: “Mister, do you come here to rest? ”

The police speak to an old man in the park who appears to be injured and cannot talk. Later on, the police discovered that it was this 75-year-old man who had tied a watermelon knife to a slide in a park in Tainan's Annan District. The next time they went to look for him, they found that he had already died.

Ou Tsu-ming, Captain, 3rd Precinct, Tainan City Police Dept.: “There were bloodstains he left behind at the scene, the DNA he left on the knife handle, and the biometric evidence taken from the deceased. On that day, a witness saw him at around 11:50 a.m., and noticed that the deceased appeared to have bloodstains on his head. The scooter parked to the side was one we had previously checked. Our preliminary conclusion is that the deceased was the one who carried the knife to the park.”

In May, a knife was found tied to a slide in the park. The police accessed surveillance camera footage and gathered evidence, including bloodstains. They determined the blood and knife came from the same man.

Ou Tsu-ming, Captain, 3rd Precinct, Tainan City Police Dept.: “We questioned family members. The deceased person's granddaughter told us that her grandfather was experiencing a loss of appetite and told her that he might die over the next several days.”

The police said security cameras captured footage of the man carrying the watermelon knife from his home, putting it into a box on his scooter, and riding the scooter to the park, which was located 100 meters from his home. The man had no criminal record and his motive may never be known. The police believe this was an isolated incident, but they will step up patrols.

 

 

警方回到案發公園遇到一位老翁,老翁似乎已經受傷無法言語。不過後續經過警方釐清。正是這位75歲老翁把西瓜刀綁在安南區頂美公園的溜滑梯上,但後續再找到人卻已經過世。

台南市警第三分局分局長歐祖明表示:「現場遺留的血跡還有刀具上的刀柄,他的DNA跟死者所採的生物跡證比對是相符的,當然目擊證人當日在11點50分左右也發現了這位死者,在那邊也有頭部疑似血跡部分,旁邊停放機車剛好是我們查證的這個,我們初步可以研判公園上的刀具部分應該是死者所攜帶過去的。」

上月底,安南區頂美公園溜滑梯被民眾綁了一把西瓜刀,引發家長恐慌,後續經過警方持續調閱監視器、釐清加上採集血跡檢體送驗,確認血跡跟刀都是老翁所為。

歐祖明說:「我們在查訪家屬當中,死者孫女也跟我們告知說,他阿公近來食慾不振,然後也曾經跟她講說可能他這幾天就要走了的這種說法,大概我們在過程得到這些訊息。」

警方表示,監視器也拍下唐姓老翁從家裡帶西瓜刀放在機車置物箱後,騎機車到離家百公尺的頂美公園,不過對於老翁無前科、犯案動機為何,警方也沒有發現相關證據,研判為個案。而後續警方也會加強附近巡邏,讓附近的民眾安心。
