“Initial investigation showed the unemployed man has three criminal records.
“We are investigating the case under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder,” she said.
On Tuesday, a 31-year-old man was stabbed in the abdomen and shoulder following an argument with the suspect at about 8.45pm.
The argument started after the suspect showed up late to babysit the children of the victim who was running late for his night shift duty.
The victim’s 64-year-old mother saw the two arguing and walked towards them to see what was happening.
She then saw her son bleeding and quickly shouted for help. The victim was subsequently rushed to the Penang Hospital and admitted.
