IPOH, Perak - An elderly couple was savagely slashed by four masked men just as they had arrived at their house in Kampung Koh, Sitiawan on Friday.
The husband and wife, both in their 50s, were severely cut on their hands and legs.
They were found lying in a pool of blood next to their motorcycle outside the house at about 10pm by a local voluntary security team and rushed to the Manjung hospital.
The couple had just arrived at the house on their motorcycle when the attackers pounced on them.
The husband, who did not want to be identified, said he did not know of the motive of the attack.
"I have never offended anyone or made any enemies.
"I don't think they are trying to rob us because they did not steal our money.
"All I knew was that they kept hacking at our legs and arms until we could not run away," he said.
He said he and his wife tried to run to the nearby oil palm plantation but he tripped and fell.
"The attackers did not utter a single word," he said, adding that the attackers fled before police arrived.
Manjung OCPD Asst Comm Jaafar Baba confirmed that the couple had lodged reports and the case was being investigated for causing hurt.
