A 47-year-old woman was rushed to hospital after her neighbour threw a durian shell at her following an argument at a flat in Teluk Kumbar, Balik Pulau, reported Harian Metro.

A witness said the two women were embroiled in a heated quarrel in defence of their daughters who were also heard arguing with each other several hours earlier last Wednesday.

“The victim had gone over to her neighbour’s flat to ask about the misunderstanding between their daughters,” said the witness.

“She was also heard raising her voice.”

The witness added that the neighbour was upset and retaliated by pulling the victim’s hair and punching her.

The victim fell but quickly got up. That was when the neighbour flung a durian shell at her face, causing the victim to whimper in pain.

A group of neighbours quickly broke up the heated argument and took the victim to the hospital for treatment.

> A woman is heartbroken after being cheated by her Facebook lover who said he wanted to marry her, reported Berita Harian.

Amira, 25, said she met the man through Facebook last December. He claimed he was from Sarawak and was previously an enforcement officer.

“After six months, we met for the first time at a market in Klang. Three meetings later, he proposed and I agreed,” she said.

The man then asked her for loans, claiming he needed money because he did not have a stable job.

She gave him money and it eventually came up to RM15,000. When she stopped giving, the man distanced himself.

“When I confronted him, he promised to return the money soon but I have not heard from him since,” said Amira.

She also claimed that the man had cheated two other women of RM500 and RM50,000.
