KUALA LUMPUR - The cigarette delivery man drove his Rambo knife into the shop assistant's abdomen and told her: "I am only performing my duty."
A shocked Sulianti Johari, 31, said the suspect then calmly walked to his van, smiling and waving, before driving off from the Gombak LRT station.
She knew the man well as he had delivered goods to the shop often.
"We never had any arguments or disagreements.
"He was usually friendly with me. I thought of him as a younger brother," she said after undergoing surgery for the stab wound on the lower part of her abdomen here yesterday.
Earlier, the suspect, was said to be looking like a man possessed.
Sundry shop owner Lau Siew Ling, 49, said she knew the suspect as he delivered cigarettes to her shop often but this time around, he was looking like a man possessed.
"He looked different," she said.
