MELAKA: A 46-year-old man fell to his death from the fourth storey of an apartment in Bemban while attempting to flee from the husband of his lover.
Jasin OCPD Deputy Supt Mispani Hamdan said in the 11.47am incident on Sunday (June 26), the businessman was trying to climb down the building when he was believed to have slipped and then fell to his death.
"The man from Selandar in Jasin had allegedly tied a wire rope on the grille of the corridor to scale down the building.
"The 37-year-old woman who witnessed his escape heard a loud noise before realising the man had fallen," he said on Sunday (June 26).
"The woman's three children were at home when the deceased entered the house," he said, adding that he had gone over to her house at midnight while her husband was away.
DSP Mispani said the husband suddenly returned home at 10.30am on Sunday.
He suspected someone was inside before locking the front grille of his apartment.
He said the woman's husband then alerted the police that someone had trespassed into his home before the incident occurred.
"The body of the man has been sent to the Jasin Hospital for a post-mortem,” he added.
