Local police are looking for a “masked” man tagged as the prime suspect in the mauling of a Chinese traditional practitioner in Lanmataw Township in Yangon.
A bone and tendon specialist, Linn Aung, 50, was hit from behind in his 3rd floor apartment on 9th street.
“There were about five women sitting in my salad shop before the clinic opened. They went up only after the clinic was opened. Then I saw a man running down the stairs with a cloth covering his hand. His skin is dark and is tall. He was also wearing jeans. I heard the doctor shout soon after. The doctor’s sister rushed to the clinic only to see her brother lying in blood. He was brought to the hospital,” a woman who owns the shop said.
“My husband has no enemy. He even treats poor patients for free. I want to know who did this and I want the man arrested,” Moe Moe Lwin, the wife of the therapist, said.
The Lanmadaw Township Police Station said necessary actions will be taken to arrest the offender.
