Mentally ill son punches and stabs father


CYBERJAYA: A 73-year-old army retiree was found lying in a pool of blood at his house in Kampung Jenderam Hulu in Sepang after he was repeatedly punched in the face and stabbed with a knife by his son who is said to be mentally ill.

Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said the 48-year-old went berserk when police arrived at the family home at around 7pm last Wednesday and tried to arrest him.

Police also confiscated the weapon that was used in the attack.

He said the man, a persons with disabilities (OKU) card holder, allegedly went on a violent rampage because he had not taken his psychiatric medication for a long time.

“The man has to take the sedatives prescribed by Hospital Banting every day,” he said at a press conference yesterday, Bernama reported.

ACP Wan Kamarul Azran said the man suffered from seizures and was anaemic.

“The man, who has no criminal history, is on remand and the case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code,” he said.
