According to Razarudin, the incident began when two students, a 22-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, came to the police station at 2.30am on Friday (May 17) about a sexual assault case.

A 21-year-old man then arrived on a motorcycle and went to the back of the police station, he said.

He said when one of the policemen went behind to inquire about the man, he was slashed in the neck.
