The witness who was near the victim at the time immediately ran away and reported the incident to the police. When they came to the scene, the victim was already dead.
After evacuating the victim, the police immediately combed the whole area to chase the perpetrators.
“When a joint police team were chasing the perpetrators along a man-made river toward Masi Village, they were attacked with arrows. But no injuries were reported,” he said, adding that two alleged suspects were arrested during the encounter.
Kamal said three murder cases that allegedly involved the group of unidentified men has been reported this month.
Previously, two other victims who died in previous attacks by the alleged group of unidentified men were Hendy Jovinski, a staffer of the Yahukimo General Elections Commission, and Muhammad Thoyib, a shop attendant of a store for building supplies. They died on August 12 and on August 20, respectively.
The police have yet to name a suspect following the multiple terror acts in Yahukimo.
