Painter jailed for attacking man with foot-long knife



KUALA LUMPUR --- A painter landed himself in jail for slicing man with a foot-long knife in an attack which began as a quarrel and escalated into a bloody brawl.

Yeow Wee Wee, 46, committed the crime at 7.39pm at 666 Jalan Air Keroh, Setapak, Wangsa Maju, here, on March 25.

He injured one A. Kalimathu, 54, in the forehead and stomach with the knife during the brawl.

Yeow was charged under Section 324 of the Penal Code for causing hurt with a weapon. The offence carries a jail term of up to three years or a fine or whipping, or any two of the punishments.

DPP Noorelynna Abd Halim urged the court to put public interest first and mete out a deterrent punishment.

“Considering the frequency of the attacks that happens these days, a stern punishment should be given to also teach the public a lesson,” she said at the magistrate’s court here on Tuesday.

Yeow, who was not represented, said in mitigation that he is still supporting his parents.

Magistrate Ahmad Solihin Abd Wahid ordered Yeow to serve six months in jail from the date of arrest.
