PETALING JAYA: Frustrated with his employer's reluctance to pay his salary, a 24-year-old Myanmar man attempted suicide by slashing his neck. 

The victim, who was believed to have been working at a seafood restaurant in Paramount Garden here for several months, had used a glass shard to slash his neck. 

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the man was found near a gym at a shopping mall near Mutiara Damansara at about 7.30pm on Tuesday night. 

He was identified as Kyaw Lin Htike from Mudon, Myanmar.

"He was attended by a doctor who happened to be in the area at the time of incident. Investigations revealed that he was frustrated when he was denied his pay," said Mohd Zani.

The victim has been sent to the Sungai Buloh Hospital where he is recovering.
