Police hunt for attempted murderer of wife


PADAWAN: Police are on the hunt for a man who allegedly attempted to murder his wife behind a church at Jalan Batu Kawa yesterday (Oct 21).

District police chief Supt Abang Zainal Abidin Abg Ahmad, who confirmed the case, said the incident happened around 7.30pm when the 35-year-old victim went to meet her husband (suspect) at the scene.

Investigations found that the victim had earlier asked permission from her mother to leave the family home at Taman Desa Wira to meet up with the suspect.

“According to the mother, the victim and her husband were in the process of divorcing and both of them are not living together.

“Not long after, the victim’s mother (complainant) received calls from the public that her daughter has suffered severe injuries after being stabbed with a sharp object,” he said.

The victim was found with several stab wounds to her back as well as injuries to her head and neck. She was rushed by a member of the public to Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) for immediate treatment.

Abang Zainal said the case was being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder.

He pointed out that efforts to locate one Aloysius Sinclair Eden, whose last known address is at Kampung Apar Singai, Bau, are still ongoing.

“Should any members of the public have any information pertaining to the incident or on the suspect’s whereabouts, they are advised to contact the Padawan police control room at 082-862233,” he said.
