A 41-year-old man in Kepong was scratched and beaten by his wife when he rejected her attempts to reconcile with him, reported Harian Metro.
The 40-year-old woman, who reacted violently to being rejected, also hit her partner with an electric insect swatter, injuring his body and hands.
Police sources told the daily that prior to the attack, the man had been alone in his room when the wife asked to speak to him about their marital problems. However, the man refused to open the door, giving the excuse that he was tired and had to wake up early the next morning for work.
Upon hearing this, the irate wife began banging on the room door, finally forcing the man to let her in.
“The woman then urged the husband to resolve their marital problems but he refused and went back to sleep,” said the source.
The wife, said the source, got furious and started yelling at her husband, sparking an argument.
The argument turned violent later when the wife took the insect swatter and hit the man repeatedly.
She also scratched his body. After pushing his wife away, the man managed to run out of the room and subsequently lodged a report at the Jinjang police station.
> Kosmo! reported that an administrative assistant with the Kelantan government lost almost RM10,000 in cash and personal items while performing prayers at a mosque in Bandar Lama, Gua Musang.
The 50-year-old woman only realised that her bag had gone missing after performing her afternoon prayers in the mosque with eight others. A helper at the mosque said the woman had felt uneasy while performing her prayers but shrugged it off as she was in a holy place.
The woman lost RM5,000 in cash, a gold bracelet worth RM2,000, a diamond ring worth RM1,000 and two mobile phones as well as several important documents, including her passport.
The woman said she hardly prayed at that mosque and was not familiar with the congregation.
