Cops trying to trace m-bike of man who attacked nuns

SEREMBAN: Police are trying to trace the registration number of the motorcycle used by a suspect who attacked two nuns in the compound of a church here, which resulted in the death of one of them.

The police forensics team has viewed footage of the CCTV recordings at the Church of Visitation and is now attempting to zero in on the suspect.

“We have seen the footage but the bike’s number plate is blur. We will get expert help for a better image,” said Seremban OCPD Asst Comm Zainal Abu.

It is learnt that police have also sought the assistance of owners of other CCTV-fitted buildingsa.

In the 6am attack on May 14, CCTVs at the church had recorded a motorcyclist riding past Gate 2, only to return about a minute later to enter its compound.

A short while earlier, Sisters Julianna Lim, 69, and Marie Rose alias Theresa Teng, 79, and another unidentified nun from the Holy Infant Jesus order had arrived for morning mass.

Both Lim and Marie Rose walked to the front of the church after parking their car while the third sister entered the church via a side entrance.

At 6.05am, one of the cameras recorded the suspect, who was wearing a full-faced helmet, running towards the two sisters.

Two minutes later, the suspect was seen to be leaving the church grounds on his motorcycle.

A church caretaker then found the two sisters bleeding and sprawled at the entrance.

Both were rushed to the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital but Lim died without regaining consciousness on May 20 due to severe head injuries.

Marie Rose, who suffered head and facial injuries, was discharged a few days after the assault.
