    Bank manager stabbed to death near home

    KUALA LUMPUR: Bank manager Andy Teoh accompanied his wife to dinner and shopping at the Sunway Pyramid shopping complex Friday night. It was to be their last outing together.

    As Teoh, 48, and his wife were waiting for the lift to return to their unit at the Lagoon Perdana Apartments near Bandar Sunway, a man stabbed him in the back with what is believed to have been a dagger.

    The assailant, who was also armed with a sickle, then slashed the bank manager's face.

    Chased by the man, Teoh staggered for about 80ms, only to collapse and die on the spot in the incident at 10.45pm.

    Upon seeing this, the killer panicked and fled from the scene as Teoh's 38-year-old wife shouted for help.

    It is learnt that closed-circuit television cameras (CCTVs) were neither installed at the parking lot nor in the vicinity of the lift.

    On Saturday, Selangor CID deputy chief ACP Omar Mammah said initial investigations revealed that the assailant targeted only Teoh and not his wife.

    "We believe the couple were not acquainted with the assailant but had noticed him while walking from their car to the lift," he said, adding that the motive of the murder had not been ascertained.

    He said checks revealed the absence of CCTVs near the lift and parking lot, adding that it was puzzling how the killer managed to pass through the apartment's security detail.

    Omar said the couple married five years ago. - Bernama
