In a shocking incident, a teenager was found covered in bloof with a knife embedded in her cheek.
The 19-year-old shop assistant had finished work and was walking home when a robber confronted her.
According to reports, the man allegedly grabbed the girl’s handbag but she resisted. He grappled with her before plunging the kitchen knife into her face and fleeing with her valuables in Bukit Tengah, Malaysia.
A footage from the scene shows her calmly sitting on a wall with the weapon sticking out just below her right eye while passers-by come to her aid.
Police said the girl was still conscious and was rushed to Bukit Mertajam hospital where she was recovering after the attack.
According to sources, the unnamed woman had walked down a 'dark alley' when she was confronted.
Seberang Perai Central District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner, Mr Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid, confirmed the case and said they were searching for a 'well-built man' who had tried to steal the victim's handbag.
