IPOH: A former bank employee was arrested by police for allegedly assaulting her own mother in a fit of rage in Teluk Intan.
Police said the 30-year-old had lost her temper with the victim because she could not take a shower as there was no water in the tank in the house.
Hilir Perak OCPD Asst Comm Ahmad Adnan said the 54-year-old victim suffered injuries to her ring finger and cheeks during the commotion at the living room of her house in Teluk Intan Mas, at 8.30pm on Saturday.
“The suspect started shouting at her mother and accusing her of finding fault.
“The suspect also pushed her and hit her on the head. She also kicked her and scratched her face, ” he said.
ACP Ahmad Adnan said the suspect, the second of three children, had been staying with her mother since the end of 2014, after being terminated from her bank job in Kuala Lumpur.
He said initial investigations revealed the unemployed degree holder had been fighting and breaking things in the house.
The suspect, who has no criminal record, was arrested yesterday at 2am.
ACP Ahmad Adnan said her urine test came back negative.
“The suspect has been remanded until May 26, and the case is being investigated under the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt as well as criminal intimidation, ” ACP Ahmad Adnan said.
