The attacker could then be seen placing his hand on the man's chest to check for a heartbeat, before grabbing his shirt to place him in a sitting position. The 26-year old security guard was later arrested over the assault and remanded for four days to facilitate investigations. Tumpat police chief Superintendent Ab. Rashid Mat Daud said that the police have taken action while still carrying out an investigation. "The victim is currently being treated at the Tumpat Hospital after suffering injuries to his face (and head). "The case is being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing injury," Rashid was quoted as saying by the Malay daily. – SAYS.COM To read the original article, CLICK HEREVIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED© New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
