JB Nightclub Stabbing Allegedly Due To Jealousy, Female Suspect Deemed A Tainted Witness

JB Nightclub Stabbing Allegedly Occurred Due To Jealousy Between Men Over Female Suspect

On 27 Oct, police in Johor Bahru (JB) arrested three suspects — two Singaporean men and a Malaysian woman — over the stabbing of a 25-year-old man outside a nightclub.

Police have now determined that the stabbing resulted from jealousy over the woman.

She has since been deemed a tainted witness.
