KUALA LUMPUR — A local man was slashed on the neck and shoulder by two individuals during a robbery at the Block 10 Condominium, Desa Mentari 2, Petaling Jaya, near here today.
In the incident at about 5 pm, the victim was waiting for the lift at the condominium when he was approached by two suspects known as ‘Ravi’ and Tamil Aresen’ from behind.
Petaling Jaya OCPD, ACP Mohd Zani Che Din said following the sudden attack, the 44-year-old victim fell and could not defend himself.
“One of the suspects held his hand, hugged the victim from behind and slashed his neck and shoulder.
“The suspects were also believed to have snatched the gold-coloured necklace belonging to the victim which was estimated to be worth RM10,000. The victim tried to fight off the suspects but it was in vain. Both suspects then fled as soon as they saw the victim getting up,” he said when contacted.
Mohd Zani said the victim later contacted his friend to seek for assistance and take him to the nearest hospital.
He said efforts to track down the suspects were being actively carried out and the case was being investigated under Section 394 of the Penal Code for robbery that caused injury. — BERNAMA
