KUALA LUMPUR: The labourer who ran amok and slashed his 82-year-old mother and brother at their home in Taman Bukit Anggerik near here allegedly has a history of violence.
The man, in his 50s, beat his sisters, ex-wife and children in the past, according to the brother who was slashed on his head and hands.
“As far as we know, he has no mental problem but he has a temper,” he said. “He gets angry very easily.”
The victim said he realised that something was wrong with his brother several days before the incident.
“He would punch the wall, throw things and make noises,” he claimed at Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM).
The victim said he even went to a Chinese temple to pray and seek guidance for his brother.
Before the attack, the victim said he was watching TV with his mother in the living room while his brother was in a room upstairs.
“Suddenly, my brother came down with a parang and attacked me,” he said, adding that his mother was also slashed when she tried to stop the attack.
The victim said he and his mother locked the gate and quickly left the house, adding that he then informed a neighbour who called the police.
When police arrived, they found the labourer had locked himself in one of the rooms.
Cheras OCPD Senior Asst Comm Mohan Singh said the man was remanded for four days.
