He had gone to investigate suspicious noises coming from a neighbouring house.

Little did the man, 66, know that there was a housebreaking attempt going on. Tragically, the investigation led to the retiree losing his life.

Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Azmi Abu Kassim said a robber had broken into the house in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, yesterday evening.

When he rushed out, he saw retiree Ang Hun Mung and tried to snatch ​his bag, Malay Mail Online reported.

When the 66-year-old refused to hand the item over, a struggle ensued. The robber, in his 20s, beat him until the senior citizen collapsed.

That was when he panicked and fled on a motorcycle.

A post-mortem found that the victim had died from a heart attack.
