This is the horrifying moment a female architect was hacked to death in the street in Istanbul but a stranger who ‘wanted to kill a woman’. 

Footage shows Basak Cengiz, 27, walking down a road in the Eurasian city closely followed by a man carrying a concealed samurai sword.  

The suspect, identified by police as Can Goktug Boz, can be seen grabbing Cengiz from behind and making a stabbing motion as she collapses.  

He appears to inflict several wounds on the 27-year-old as she tries to roll away before fleeing the scene as passing cars stop to help. 

Boz tailed Cengiz on November 9 after seeing her walk past his apartment block on her way home from work several times, police said.  

He told police his actions were ‘influenced by films he watched’ and was described by officers as ‘mentally unstable’.

Cengiz, who was engaged and soon due to be married, was rushed to a private hospital in Atasehir district of Istanbul in a critical condition but was later declared dead.

The 27-year-old usually lives in the Turkish capital Ankara but was visiting Istanbul for a work assignment. She did not know the suspect. 

On the day of the incident, she was due to catch a work shuttle to a hotel she was staying at with her colleagues but had decided to walk back after staying late at the office.  

Police arrested Boz in his apartment in Atasehir district of Istanbul after reviewing footage from the apartment block’s security cameras.

Officers from the Atasehir Public Security Bureau raided the residence and arrested the suspect. 

Police recovered the samurai sword at the address where they also found phrases such as ‘stab them in the stomach’, ‘set a trap’, and ‘kill those who argue’ written on the walls.

Boz was later taken to the Gayrettepe Public Security Branch for questioning, where he was reported as being ‘mentally unstable’.

During his first interrogation, officers reportedly asked him: ‘Why did you commit this murder?’ To which he reportedly replied: ‘I was influenced by the films I watched’.

The suspect remains in custody as the investigation continues.
