KUALA LUMPUR: The cigarette delivery man who killed two people and injured two others after he ran amok with his rambo knife has been remanded for a week until Oct 31.
City deputy CID chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa said the 26-year-old had been remanded for seven days from yesterday for investigation.
“The post-mortems carried out on the victims have been completed but we are still awaiting the reports,” he said when contacted.
ACP Khairi said the case was being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
It was reported that a cigarette delivery man went on a stabbing spree, taking down four victims, including fatally wounding two, here in Taman Melati on Thursday.
His 40 minutes of terror began at 11.20am when he drove his van to a kiosk at the Gombak Putra LRT terminal to deliver cigarettes. Without warning, he pulled out a rambo knife and stabbed the outlet proprietor Lau Siew Ling, 49, and her helper Sulianti Johari, 31.
He then got into his vehicle and drove towards Jalan Pertahanan parallel to the Melati LRT station less than 2km away, and rammed into another van.
When the owner of the van, Lee Kah Ghee, 48, got out to investigate, the man stabbed him several times, leaving him to die on the busy road.
The man then got back into his van and drove a few hundred metres before colliding with a car driven by college student Kwan Chun Tai, 25. He got out and stabbed Kwan.
Kwan ran, but the man chased him, caught him and stabbed him to death in Jalan Tumbuhan.
A crowd of onlookers cornered the man and disarmed him. He was then beaten up and detained until the police arrived and arrested him.
