SHAH ALAM, Malaysia - A brawl at a restaurant in Section 15 here left one man dead from severe stab wounds and his arms mutilated.
The victim, Danny Lechumiah, was reportedly having drinks with four other friends along Jalan Pahat at about 6am yesterday when an unknown number of parang-wielding assailants approached them.
Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Azisman Alias said Danny's group started to run at the sight of the attackers who only went for the 26-year-old, slashing and stabbing him in the street.
"A patrol team rushed to the scene where they found Danny's body in a pool of blood. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim had suffered deep stab wounds to the back of his head and back, while his right thigh was slashed five times.
"The victim's arms were mutilated. His right limb was cut off and is missing while his left arm was left barely attached to his body. A K9 unit was sent to try and locate the victim's missing arm but it could not be found," he said.
Initial investigations led police to believe the motive for the murder could be revenge, with officers recording statements from the victim's four friends.
ACP Azisman said the victim had previously been charged with possessing a dangerous weapon in public.
