Hubby beat me up after I scolded him, says woman

KEPALA BATAS: A woman has claimed her husband punched, kicked and stomped on her for telling him off about taking their six-year-old daughter drinking with him.

According to Seberang Perai Utara district police chief Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor, the 38-year-old victim said he would often do this and she was worried something bad might happen to their daughter.

ACP Noorzainy said in the 8pm incident at their home in Taman Mesra, Mak Mandin yesterday, the 40-year-old man became angry and violent, and punched his wife in the head and body till she fell.

“The suspect then stomped on her stomach and kicked her several times, strangled her and threatened to kill her.

“He also slapped their 13-year-old daughter who tried to help the victim.

“During this time, their six-year-old daughter had gone to get help from their neighbours,” added ACP Noorzainy.

The neighbours helped calm things down before the victim decided to lodge a police report.

ACP Noorzainy said the couple had been married for 13 years.

Early investigations showed that the suspect often beat his wife over disagreements about bringing their six-year-old along while he met his drinking partners.

“Police detained the husband after they found him hiding in a house in Mak Mandin,” ACP Noorzainy said, adding that the victim was sent to Hospital Seberang Jaya for treatment.

He said the suspect, who is a labourer, had been remanded for four days. — Bernama
