PETALING JAYA: A one-armed man stabbed a six-footer to death during a drunken brawl in Puchong.
Police sources said a fight broke out early yesterday morning between the intoxicated men, who are both Myanmar nationals.
The 35-year-old victim then demanded that the one-armed man get out of his place, which was a rented unit located on the fourth floor of a shophouse in Bandar Puteri.
“The wife of the deceased, a Myanmar national believed to be in her 20s, hid in the bathroom as the fight took place in another room,” the police source added.
Apparently, the amputee, also in his 20s, fled the scene after stabbing the man.
“The frightened woman came out of hiding after the suspect had left the place.
“She found her semi-conscious husband naked and covered in blood,” said a source, adding that the victim died 20 minutes later.
It is believed that he had been stabbed four times.
A police report was lodged and police arrived at the scene at around 2am.
The body of the victim was sent to the Serdang Hospital for a post-mortem.
Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Razak Elias confirmed the incident and said that a manhunt for the suspect had been launched.
