Four men from the mainland were assaulted on Saturday evening, with one killed. The Judiciary Police (PJ) is investigating the case and looking to press the charge of murder.
The incident took place near the Four Seasons Hotel under the footbridge connecting it to the Sands Cotai Central. It was accidentally discovered by a Public Security Police Force (PSP) officer who was on patrol.
The officer saw a man surnamed Wei, 40 years old, lying on the ground with wounds to his chest and waist. Wei was sent to Kiang Wu Hospital in Taipa, where the other three men, who also sustained stab wounds, were found by the police officer.
Wei died in hospital later that night. The cause of his death will be determined post-mortem.
After a preliminary investigation, the four men were found to be connected to the same incident.
The PSP and the PJ deployed a large number of officers and investigators to the spot where Wei was discovered to collect evidence. The weapon is still missing and there is no confirmed suspect.
The three injured men hold Chinese identification documents and are aged between 29 and 39. All three were conscious when the PSP officer arrived at the hospital, while one of them later underwent an operation.
The Times submitted a request to the PJ for information related to the case, but a reply was not received by press time. Staff reporter
