KUALA LUMPUR: A 71-year-old retired civil servant died while trying to fend off robbers in his Bangsar home.

“According to the deceased’s wife, around 3.30am loud noises were heard from the kitchen. Two men armed with machetes came in and demanded money, ” said Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar when contacted on Sunday (Nov 29).

He said that a struggle ensued between the husband and the robbers and that led to him being slashed with the machete, adding that the wife was also injured during the fight.

“The suspects then took the valuables, which are still being identified, and escaped through the kitchen window, ” he said

ACP Anuar said that the deceased has been identified as Wan Hassan Wan Embong and that the police were alerted when a report was made by a woman saying that her mother’s house had been broken into and that her mother had also been injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
