KUANTAN: A 34-year-old woman was stabbed to death in a robbery attempt at her house in Kampung Hijrah, here.
District police chief Asst Comm Abdul Aziz Salleh said Norhasilah Ismail, who was stabbed on her stomach and chest, had returned home after sending her son and daughter to school at about 8am on Friday.
He said Norhasilah's body was found lying in a pool of blood in the living room by her husband Nasrul Mansor, 32, when he returned home after picking up his son and daughter from school later in the day.
During the incident the victim's four-year-old son was in a room on the top floor of the house which was locked from outside.
“Police do not rule out the possibility of a scuffle before the victim was stabbed. We will examine the closed-circuit television camera in the victim's house to identify the suspect,” he said.
He said the victim's body was sent to Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital for post-mortem. - Bernama
