Melbourne, Aug 17 (ANI): Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - so true - especially in the case of a woman from Hong Kong, who slunk into her ex-lover’s apartment to threaten him with a knife if he didn’t get back with her.

According to News.com.au, Berry Chan, 25, shimmied down a drainpipe, broke into her ex-boyfriend’s flat and held a knife to his throat, demanding a reunion.

He managed to coax her into dropping the knife.

Soon after, she was convicted earlier of aggravated burglary for the break-in on December 23, the South China Morning Post reported.

And yesterday, she was sentenced to 15 months of jail.

“It was not about a dishonest person or a thief entering the premises with a knife. It is not a normal aggravated burglary. It’s more like a crime of passion,” Deputy Judge Amanda Woodcock was quoted as saying. (ANI)
