KUALA LUMPUR: Police arrested a 33-year-old man on Friday to facilitate investigations into the murder of kindergarten teacher Yasuhaidah Yeop.
It was learnt that police made a breakthrough after tracing the man, who was picked in Sri Damansara.
Petaling Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed the arrest, but declined to elaborate.
"We detained him to assist in the investigation."
Yasuhaidah, 22, was found in a pool of blood in her flat at Flora Damansara at 3am on Aug 17.
The victim, the youngest of eight siblings, was alone at the time of the murder.
Her elder sister, Yazniyana, whom she was staying with, had gone shopping with her boyfriend earlier at 11pm.
Initial investigations showed that the victim died of slash wounds on the neck.
A fist full of her hair and a knife, believed to be the murder weapon, were found at the scene.
Investigations also revealed that Yasuhaidah may have known her murderer as there were no signs of forced entry into the flat.
Yasuhaidah left her hometown in Beruas, Perak, six months ago to search for better job opportunities here.
