Three men attacked with knives over MOP8,000 loan

The Judiciary Police (PJ) received reports on the evening of May 12 regarding a case of serious bodily harm involving three victims. The victims were blue-collar immigrant workers from Vietnam, aged between 20 and 30.

The incident occurred following a dispute over an outstanding loan of MOP8,000 owed by one of them. Four creditors met with the victims to discuss the repayment but, when it became apparent that they were unable to repay the loan, the creditors resorted to violence and attacked the three men with knives.

The victims sustained knife wounds of varying degrees of severity, with one requiring emergency surgery while the other two sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The perpetrators fled the scene leaving the knives behind.

The PJ promptly secured the crime scene and ensured that the victims received appropriate medical treatment. They then initiated a search for the perpetrators and apprehended three out of the four attackers on May 13. By reviewing CCTV footage, the PJ discovered that one of the attackers had escaped and left Macau via the Macau-Zhuhai border.

The investigation remains ongoing, and the three assailants in custody have refused to cooperate with the authorities regarding the whereabouts of their accomplice. HT
