For the two men who were stabbed to death by the crazed killer, it was a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
First, he rammed Mr Lee Kah Ghee's van.
When Mr Lee, 48, got out to investigate, the man stabbed him many times before leaving him for dead on a busy road.
The suspect then drove a few hundred metres before colliding with the car of Mr Kwan Chun Tai.
The killer got out and confronted Mr Kwan, a college student, 25, and stabbed him.
Mr Kwan ran, trying to escape, but the suspect chased him, caught him and stabbed him at least five times, the star reported.
Mr Kwan's mother, Ms Yong Ean Siang, a boutique worker, said her son was about to graduate with a business degree from Tunku Abdul Rahman University College next month.
Ms Yong, 55, said her last conversation with Mr Kwan was at 11am on Wednesday when she asked him to return home to collect his letters.
she said that Mr Kwan, the younger of two siblings, was hard-working and active in college.
she said: "I could not believe it when the police informed me he had been killed...Who would have wanted to hurt my son?"
his father, Mr Kwan Chong tuck, 59, could barely contain his anger and sadness as he said prayers for his son at a funeral parlour.
Said the distraught father on Friday: "Chun Tai never did anything wrong to anyone. Why did he have to kill him?"
