Tuaran police chief Deputy Supt Dzulbaharin Ismail stated that the suspect is a local in his 30s. The man allegedly lost his temper after the argument and started chasing and attacking the victim. The authorities believe the suspect has gone into hiding after fleeing into a nearby forest.

“We are currently hunting the suspect,” DSP Dzulbaharin affirmed. He also mentioned that nearby villagers rushed to help Daniel, who was left bleeding on the ground. Daniel has suffered significant blood loss and is currently being treated at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kota Kinabalu.

He is reportedly in a stable condition.

We wish Daniel a speedy recovery and urge any of our readers who live in KK or know anyone in KK with the blood type O+ to take a trip to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to donate blood.
