SELANGOR, MALAYSIA: A 44-year-old man stabbed his 26-year-old lover near a restaurant at Jalan Bayu Tinggi in Klang on Monday (18 Dec) afternoon, leaving the victim dead in a horrifying display of jealousy.
Selangor deputy police chief, Deputy Comm Datuk S. Sasikala Devi, revealed the chilling details at a press conference held on Wednesday.
According to Devi, the suspect and the victim were in a romantic relationship, and jealousy was the primary motive behind the brutal attack.
The investigation is ongoing to determine the duration of their relationship. The suspect, identified as a 44-year-old man with no prior criminal record and unmarried, resorted to violence in broad daylight, shocking the local community.
The police have recorded statements from two witnesses who were present at the crime scene to assist in the ongoing investigation. Devi assured the public that the authorities are committed to thoroughly probing the incident to unveil any additional details.
The victim, a local woman, was stabbed multiple times in the front and back by the suspect.
South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Cha Hoong Fong reported that the police received a distressing call at 2.17 pm regarding the incident. A witness informed the police that the assailant, after the attack, drove away with the victim in a car.
Investigations revealed that the suspect and the victim met at a restaurant around Jalan Bayu Tinggi 6 at 1.20 pm.
After their meal, they proceeded to the car park at Jalan Bayu Tinggi 5. It was there that the suspect attacked the victim with a knife before placing her in a silver Chevrolet car and fleeing the scene.
The assailant, attempting to evade justice, drove to his residence at Jalan Sungai Nibong 5, Kapar. Upon arrival, he made a futile attempt to revive the victim.
The police arrived at the location at 4.20 pm, discovering the victim in the front passenger seat in an unconscious state.
Emergency medical services confirmed her death, and the police forensic unit recovered a knife believed to be the weapon used by the suspect.
In a disturbing turn of events, the suspect, refusing to face the consequences of his actions, stabbed himself with the same knife before the police could apprehend him.
Authorities acted swiftly, arresting the suspect and initiating legal proceedings against him.
