KUALA TERENGGANU: An ex-serviceman was critically injured after being stabbed by his son during a heated argument.
Terengganu CID chief Asst Comm K. Manoharan said in the 9.30pm incident on Saturday, the 55-year-old victim tried to defuse a quarrel between his son and his fiancee in front of their house at Kampung Lembah Harapan Seberang Takir, here.
He said the 22-year-old son became agitated when his father stepped in to offer advice even though he told him not to interfere.
“The victim advised his son but instead a quarrel ensued between the two and ended in a tussle. Unhappy and angry with his father’s action, the son attacked the father and stabbed him in the body with what is believed to be a knife,” he said.
He said the sharp object pierced the victim’s lungs and ribs, adding that he was being treated at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital and reported to be in stable condition.
He said police detained the unemployed son at about 1.30am while receiving treatment at the hospital after he was beaten up by his siblings who found out about the incident.
Apparently, the victim’s wife and daughter were in the house.
In an unrelated incident, Setiu police chief Deputy Supt Ab Rahman Raja Mohamed said a villager assaulted a fellow villager in Bukit Kecil, Kachok, with an iron rod causing the latter head injuries.
“The victim is believed to have owed a debt of RM40 to the suspect. He was hesitant to repay the debt,” he told reporters after attending the Setiu police shooting competition in conjunction with the 207th Police Day.
The 41-year-old suspect fled the village after the incident. — Bernama
