A 55-year-old man was stabbed to death by an unknown assailant following a heated argument near Berjaya Times Square on Jalan Imbi today.
Wong Fook Lum of Petaling Jaya who died of a stab wound on his right chest was found slumped in his Mercedes Benz by police who were alerted by a bystander.
An ice-cream company delivery man who witnessed the attack told police that at about 11am, he spotted Wong and another man embroiled in a argument on Jalan 1/77B.
He said minutes later, Wong was seen getting into his car and his suspected killer who was brandishing a knife followed him into the vehicle.
However, moments later the assailant alighted from the car and walked towards a street behind Sungai Wang Plaza. The witness also told police that the slim and small built man continued loitering in the vicinity of the area. However, he was nowhere to be seen when police arrived.
