Youth slashed, woman among three arrested in Kulai

KULAI: Police have arrested three suspects including a female after a 27-year-old youth was slashed in a parang attack in Taman Scientex Senai here.

Kulai OCPD Supt Tok Beng Yeow said police received a distress call through emergency line MERS 999 informing about a fight at Jalan Scientex Jaya at around 7.50pm on Thursday (Dec 8).

"The female suspect is believed to have driven a white Honda Accord car in the attack. Police immediately alerted personnel patrolling the area to find and arrest those involved.

"The victim sustained injuries to his head, shoulders, arms and legs and was brought to Sultanah Aminah Hospital in Johor Baru for medical treatment. He is currently in stable condition," he said here on Friday (Dec 9).

Supt Tok said that his men spotted a car, which matches the description at a petrol station in Taman Aman near Senai at about 3.40am on Friday morning.

He added that the car was driven by the 23-year-old female suspect and a parang was found after further checks inside the vehicle.

"Another Honda Accord car arrived at the scene driven by a 24-year-old male suspect where police immediately arrested the two of them.

"Their arrest led the police to a 34-year-old male suspect in Senai," he said, adding that further checks found the two male suspects have prior records.

Supt Tok said police seized the parang, two car keys, two Honda Accords, two shirts and two pairs of jeans from the suspects.

"Vengeance could be the main motive behind the attack but the police are still investigating the matter," he said, adding that the suspects were under remand for four days to assist with the investigation under Section 324 of the Penal Code.
