A MAN locked his wife in his room at home for almost an entire day while he went out to meet his secret lover, reported Harian Metro.
The man locked up his wife because he was worried that she would tell the rest of his family about his infidelity.
The woman was only rescued later at about 6.45pm when her child’s babysitter went over to the house after she failed to pick up the child from the daycare centre.
The incident, in Bandar Tun Razak, happened after the wife found out about the husband’s affair.
A police source said that the wife had questioned her husband about the woman whom he frequently contacted and he finally admitted to having an affair.
“The distraught wife decided to leave the house, and the man, shocked by her reaction, threatened her with a knife.
“He then locked her up in the room,” he said.
The man then left the house to meet his girlfriend.
The woman later made a report at the Sungai Besi police station.
> A 24-year-old woman had a bowl of hot tomyam soup splashed on her face before being beaten up by her boyfriend for trying to end their relationship, reported Harian Metro.
The enraged boyfriend, in his 20s, also ran off with the woman’s handbag which contained her personal documents and RM100.
She was having the tomyam soup for supper at about 1am last Sunday at a restaurant in Old Klang Road.
The man had come over to the restaurant, which is run by the woman’s sister, to talk about their relationship.
According to a source, the man spoke nicely at first, pleading for the woman not to end their relationship.
“However, when she politely declined, he became angry and demanded an explanation,” he said.
The source said that the woman wanted to end the relationship because her boyfriend had a bad temper and would sometimes hit her when things did not go his way.
The man was unhappy with her explanation and started shouting at her before splashing the bowl of soup on her face.
The woman did not have time to react before the man pushed and kicked her, causing her to fall.
She later lodged a report at the Petaling police station.
