GEORGE TOWN: A teenager was killed after he was assaulted by a group of men at the IJM seafront promenade in Sungai Pinang early Wednesday.

It was then the four men began attacking him with crash helmets.

The teenager, identified as Ameer Mustaqim Naharuddin, a cleaner at Universiti Sains Malaysia here, died on the spot.

Several eyewitnesses immediately alerted the police over the incident, which occurred around 2.40am.
