A model has been arrested in the northern Croatian city of Rijeka for allegedly driving a knife into her identical twin sister’s chest.
Aside from sharing looks and an identical background, sisters Sara and Dajana Grkovic, both 22, were also infatuated with the same unidentified man.
Dajana was reportedly dating the man, which sent Sara reeling. She allegedly stabbed her identical twin sibling in the chest and thigh with a kitchen knife, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The family’s neighbors are reportedly shocked by the violent act.
“They were apparently arguing about a man that they both liked. He seems to have settled down in a relationship with Dajana, and Sara was not happy about it,” the unidentified woman told a local TV station. “I never would have thought it would come to her trying to kill her sister, though.”
“They were always immaculately groomed and polite, and as alike as two peas in a pod,” she continued. “I never knew which one was passing me in the corridor but they always said hello.”
According to another neighbor, the Grkovic sisters were very competitive as to who was more beautiful.
“Both of them were stunning,” the woman said. “I don’t think they worried about competition from other women, but they were certainly jealous of each other.”
Dajana is currently stable condition in the intensive care unit at a local hospital. She is recovering from deep chest and thigh wound wounds.
Sara remains jailed on a charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm, but could face attempted murder charges. Her bail has been set at $14,700.
