A video circulating on social media platforms showed the painters who were stuck asking residents to open their window and let them in.

According to media reports, one of the painters said he felt the rope getting heavier and looked down only to see a person cutting the rope from a lower floor. The painters reported the incident to the police.

The woman initially denied her involvement in the incident, but DNA analysis matched her fingerprints to those found on the rope she cut. She might be facing a jail sentence up to 20 years if she is found guilty of attempted murder.
