Sometimes, arguments happen when two parties can’t reach a common ground, but what’s not okay is when things start to get physical or worse, putting lives at risk.
A Malaysian student, Chen was recently killed in a heated argument in Taiwan outside a karaoke. He was only 23. The incident took place at 4 am on November 15. What was supposed to be a night to let off some steam ended up in a tragic death.
Chen was with a friend at the KTV, and he had a verbal argument with the suspect prior to the karaoke session. Coincidentally, both parties bumped into each other again after Chen finished his KTV session, which quickly escalated into a physical fight. According to police reports, the 26-year-old suspect attacked Chen with a folding knife.
Chen suffered severe injuries on his inner thigh, which caused him to lose a lot of blood at the scene. His friend was also injured. The suspect, who was also with his friends immediately escaped the premise by taking a cab.
The unfortunate Malaysian student was immediately sent to the hospital but unfortunately, he did not make it.
He died on November 18.
The police got their hands on the matter and it didn’t take long for them to apprehend all suspects. The main suspect was detained, while his friends were put under residential surveillance, according to China Times News Network.
They were all charged with attempted murder, assault, and participating in a fight.
Chen was a 3rd-year student at the National Taiwan Ocean University and was studying Marine Environmental Information, and his family members immediately flew to Taiwan after receiving the news.
