PETALING JAYA: A 21-year-old college student was chased down by a man and stabbed in the back with a knife — all for joking and laughing too loudly with his friends at a fast food outlet.
The student had been queuing up with his friends to make his order at the outlet in Jalan Genting Klang, Setapak at around 6pm yesterday when the man scolded him for being too loud.
He then got into a quarrel with the man, which escalated into violence.
The man, who is believed to be aged between 30 and 35, waited outside the outlet for the student to finish his meal with his friends before chasing him down the street and then stabbing him in the back.
The student was rushed to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital but was later discharged.
City acting CID chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa said that although the police have yet to make an arrest, they have obtained CCTV footage from the outlet to help in their investigations.
“We are studying CCTV footage within the area to ascertain the man’s identity.
“We hope that anyone with information will come forward,” he said.
Those with information can contact the police hotline at 03-2115 9999 or go to the nearest police station.
