WORK­ERS at a 24-hour con­ve­nience store had a shock when a man cov­ered in blood en­tered the premises to seek help early yes­ter­day. The vic­tim, with blood drip­ping from his wrist and ab­domen, claimed that he and his girl­friend were at­tacked by rob­bers in the 3.45am in­ci­dent.

The dis­traught and vis­i­bly weak­ened man told work­ers that rob­bers had mur­dered his girl­friend.

“There was blood on his arm and body. He was bleed­ing all over the floor in front of the shop. We rushed him to Sarawak Gen­eral Hospi­tal,” said the worker, who re­quested anonymity.

It was only later dur­ing the day that the work­ers learnt that the “vic­tim” was ac­tu­ally the mur­derer.

Checks by the New Straits Times showed blood­stains in front of the store, which was a few units away from the mur­der scene.

It was learnt that the 25-year-old man, who is a sales­man at a car ac­ces­sories shop, had an ar­gu­ment with his girl­friend at her rented house on the sec­ond floor of a three-storey shop­house.

The ar­gu­ment was be­lieved to have started af­ter he ac­cused the woman of in­fi­delity when she re­jected his sex­ual ad­vances.

The ar­gu­ment turned tragic when the sus­pect grabbed a knife and stabbed the woman twice on her neck.

Sarawak Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Depart­ment chief Datuk Dev Ku­mar said the sus­pect had ad­mit­ted to stab­bing his girl­friend when he was ques­tioned at the hospi­tal by po­lice of­fi­cers.

Po­lice­men later vis­ited the scene and found the woman sprawled on a mat­tress in the room.

“We found a knife near the vic­tim’s body,” he said, adding that the case had been clas­si­fied as mur­der.
