IPOH: An elderly couple was brutally slashed by four masked attackers outside their house in Kampung Koh, Sitiawan.
The victims were found lying in a pool of blood on their house porch at about 10pm by a voluntary security team and were rushed to the Manjung Hospital for treatment.
It is believed that the couple, both in their 50s, were attacked when they were entering their compound on their motorcycle at about 10pm on Friday.
When met at the hospital yesterday, the husband, who declined to be named, said he did not know the motive behind the attack.
“I have never offended anyone or made any enemies,” he said.
“I don’t think they were trying to rob us too, because they did not steal our money,” he said. “They kept hacking at our legs and arms until we could not get away.”
He said he and his wife tried to escape to a nearby oil palm plantation but could not do so.
The man said the attackers did not utter a single word as they attacked him and his wife.
Manjung OCPD Asst Comm Jaafar Baba said the victims had lodged a report and the incident was being investigated under Section 326 of the Penal Code for causing hurt.
