KUALA LUMPUR: A 32-year-old man is being sought by police over the murder of an unemployed man in Kepong.
The man, identified as Chong Kai Weng, is being sought to help investigations into the murder of the 26-year-old victim, who was beaten up near a snooker centre in Jalan Intan Baiduri 10B, Taman Intan Baiduri, on Sunday before succumbing to his injuries at Kuala Lumpur Hospital the next day.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm R. Munusamy said Chong, also known as Kelvin, is among four people sought by police investigating the case.
“We have yet to identify the others. We urge those who know this man to contact the nearest police station,” he said at a press conference on Tuesday.
ACP Munusamy said the victim, whose identity is being withheld by police, is believed to have been assaulted for allegedly robbing a snooker centre twice in April.
The post-mortem result revealed that the victim died due to blunt-force trauma to the head.
