Boy Cuts Man's Throat over RM5

Teenager cuts the throat of a 30 year old man when he refused to give the teenager RM5??? This is a little over the board, isn't it? Will you as a youth kill other people just for RM5??

Ok, I think I should rephrase.. Should any teen/youth commit a murder in the first place, regardless of the amount?

For RM5, a man almost lost his life when his throat was slashed with a dagger by a teenager, last night.

Tawau police acting chief Supt Ramli Ali Mat said the incident occurred in Taman Pelita, here, about 10.30pm when the 30-year-old victim was hanging out with his girlfriend in a quiet spot at the residential area.

He said a group of 10 teenagers approached the couple and asked for RM5.

“When the victim told them that he had no money, one of the teenagers pulled out a “badik” (small dagger) and pointed it to the victim’s throat.

“The victim's throat was slashed he tried to put up a fight.” Residents who heard the victim’s girlfriend scream for help called police and the victim was taken to Tawau Hospital.

Ramli said police launch a hunt for the gang and arrested one of the members last night.

He also advised young couples not to hang out in dark, quiet spots to avoid untoward incidents. — BERNAMA
