KUANTAN: A couple in their 40s have been arrested in connection with the stabbing of a Singaporean at a hotel in Bentong last Thursday.

The two — a 42-year-old woman and her 43-year-old companion — were hiding in another room after the stabbing when they were detained.

Police were able to identify the attacker after checking the hotel’s closed-circuit television recordings.

Pahang CID chief Asst Comm T. Narenasegaran said the 66-year-old victim had arrived at the hotel with a friend.

“She was stabbed in the neck from behind by a female attacker.

“The suspect did not take anything but left the victim with the knife in her neck,” said ACP Narenasegaran yesterday.

ACP Narenasegaran said the victim was sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital and was reported to be in critical condition.
