A PRODUCTION worker, who returned home early from work to find his wife having sex with another man. was jailed for two months for attacking his wife’s lover with two meat cleaving knives.
Zhuang Minhai, 29, attacked Zhang Zhiyang, 22, who as a result sustained an 8cm-long cut and a fracture of his right arm. Both men and Zhuang’s wife, Lin Liyun, 29, are Chinese nationals and worked in the same factory.
A district court heard that on April 26, Zhuang was scheduled to work the night shift however he went home at 8.30pm because he was feeling unwell. When he returned to their rented room at Boon Lay Drive, he found his wife in bed with Zhang.
He punched the other man on the back several times and told him to leave the room. When Zhang refused, Zhuang armed himself with two meat cleavers from the kitchen.
Zhang was able to evade the first two swings of the choppers but he was slashed by the third attack.
He underwent surgery the next day.
The landlady called the police after the commotion
Zhuang pleaded guilty to causing grievous hurt to Zhang. Defence counsel Justin Phua said that his client had paid the victim S$4,000 (RM10,186) to cover the medical expenses and a further S$5,000 (RM12,732) in compensation.
The lawyer also told the court that Zhuang, who had worked here since 2001, had a “heart-to-heart talk” with Lin and has forgiven her. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
