JOHOR BARU: Police arrested two men within seven hours after they were allegedly involved in the shooting and slashing of an Indian national inside a house in Taman Johor here.
They and two others had climbed over a gate and barged into the house before attacking the victim with a gun and parangs.
The victim, identified only as Magen, 31, was found unconscious in a pool of blood at the living room when one of his housemates came home from Singapore at around 12.45am yesterday.
Magen was staying with his employer, who operates a car workshop in nearby Taman Munsyi Ibrahim, and two other tenants.
Another housemate, who was at home at the time, ran to his room and locked the door to avoid being attacked.
Johor Baru (North) deputy OCPD Supt Beh Eng Lai said that police had recovered two bullet casings.
“We also found a finger print of one of the suspects at the gate which led to the arrests of the two men at around 7am in Taman Mount Austin and Tampoi here,” he said.
He said that the victim was in critical condition after being shot and slashed.
Police were confident that the two remaining suspects would be caught soon, he added.
