WHAT: A hawker-stall owner selling hot plates in JUST SMILED at an approaching man and got attacked with a kitchen knife!
Apparently the man he smiled at was a psychiatric patient at Hospital Permai Johor Bahru who was just discharged. I’m pretty sure that’s a regrettable decision now… Why? Well cause he ASSUMED that he was being mocked.
"Are you staring at me? Are you laughing at me?" he was heard shouting before attacking the hawker owner.
WHERE: Johor Bahru
As a result, the poor hawker owner was badly injured, with wound to his face, forehead & left arm. He also almost had his chin split open…
It took 30 minutes for the ambulance to arrive and the victim has been sent to Sultanah Aminah Hospital for treatment.
As for the lunatic attacker, he has been detained. When asked why he did it, he claimed that the victim owed money and that he was hired by someone to attack the guy.
MYC! Opinion & Review of the Human Interest Story: I can’t believe I’m saying this but WARNING: SMILE WITH CAUTION, or you may not have a face to smile with after. Aiyooo…
