A MAN beat up his wife after accusing her of having an online affair, reported Harian Metro.
In the 6am incident on Monday, the 29-year-old woman was stumped when she saw her husband sharpening a parang in the living room.
The man, in his 30s, began yelling as he accused her of cheating on him with a lover through a social networking site.
When she denied the accusations, he raised the weapon at her but stopped, instead choosing to pull her hair and punch her in the face.
The man then locked her in the house but the victim escaped and lodged a report at Selayang police station.
Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahim Abdullah confirmed the report.
> Harian Metro also reported on a woman who was allegedly charmed and threatened by a man who claimed he could perform rituals to exorcise spirits.
Manisah Udin, 47, from Alor Gajah, said the man, in his 40s, had visited her shop on May 11 and said there were over 200 buses near her house compound which were full of evil spirits.
She said she and her husband felt weak when the man began the exorcism ritual by placing a walking stick on their foreheads before singing and dancing.
The daily reported that after the ritual, the man demanded RM450 from Manisah, who only paid RM100.
The man threatened her and said he would return after a few days to collect the outstanding amount.
Manisah later lodged a report at Kuala Sungai Baru police station and with the Malacca Religious Department.
