A 52-year-old woman was robbed and stabbed to death by two robbers while she was jogging with her daughter at the Bukit Gasing trail on Saturday.
The deceased, Ong Ai Sam, was with her daughter when they were approached by two men armed with knives wearing full-face helmets at about 4:30pm. The suspects demanded the victim hand over her belongings but Ong shouted to her 17-year-old daughter, telling her to run to safety.
She selflessly blocked the two suspects while her daughter tried to get help from other pedestrians in the area. Sources revealed the suspects stabbed the victim before escaping with her belongings. Ong’s daughter returned to the scene with another woman and found the victim lying in pool of blood. She was rushed to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre, but succumbed to her injuries on the way there 20 minutes later.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamad said police are collecting CCTV footage from nearby houses. “We believe the motive was murder. We hope to identify the suspects soon with the assistance of the victim’s daughter and anyone who might have seen the incident”, he said.
