KEPALA BATAS: A man was arrested for allegedly getting high on drugs and threatening to kill his sisters at their home in Kampung Lembah Raja, Pinang Tunggal, here on Wednesday (Jan 13).
North Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the suspect was detained after the victims lodged a police report about the incident.
"The suspect was detained shortly after the sisters called the police who rushed to the place and arrested the suspect," he said in a statement on Thursday (Jan 13).
ACP Noorzainy said the 37-year-suspect was detained in front of their house at about 8.30pm.
ACP Noorzainy said police also seized a metal rod believed to be used by the suspects in the incident.
In the 7.40am incident, the 22-year-old victim was at home with her sister when the suspect suddenly took a metal rod and a piece of stick and started hitting the walls of the house repeatedly.
ACP Noorzainy said according to the victims, the suspect was also found to have threatened his siblings by asking them to come out and threatened to beat them to death.
He said the investigation revealed the incident happened when one of the victim, who works as a factory operator, returned from work at about 6.05pm and was talking to her sister in front of their house.
He said at the same time both sisters saw their brother was talking alone by the side of the road in front of their house.
Knowing the brother had a drug problem, the sisters ignored the suspect.
"The suspect however suddenly came towards his sisters holding the metal rods and a stick and threatened the sisters, calling them "satan" and telling them they looked like "jin"," he said.
ACP Noorzainy said the suspect had three prior records for drug offense and was found positive for methamphetamine and morphine.
The suspect was remanded for four days and the case is being investigated for criminal intimidation.
