Man brutally bashes wife
TWO children watched in horror as their father beat up their mother with a rolling pin and then shoved it into her private part. More gruesomely, he also thrust in a bottle of chilli sauce, Harian Metro reported.
The incident happened at the couple's home in Jalan Sultan Abdullah in Teluk Intan, Perak, at about 4am on Monday after the 37-year-old man came home drunk and accused his wife, 36, of having an affair.
An argument followed and, without caring that the children were watching, the man picked up a rolling pin and hit his wife on the head until she fainted.
While she was unconscious, he sexually abused her and fled.
A neighbour rushed the battered woman to hospital. The husband was arrested when he came to visit her later in the day.
> In another case of an attack by a drunken man, the paper reported that an electrician in Miri received five stitches on the head and left shoulder when his younger brother set upon him with a cleaver at their home on Sunday.
The electrician, in his 20s, paid a bloody price for advising his brother, who had been drinking with friends, not to be rude to their father.
After attacking the victim, the 19-year-old youth fled from the house.
A police report was lodged at the Lutong police station soon after the 6.30pm incident.
The electrician has been warded at the Miri Hospital while the father, in his 50s, reportedly left home to avert further tension.
> Rising actor Nazim Othman has incurred the wrath of his fans as well as the staff and students of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) after he tweeted that the university was in dire straits, reported habHIP, the entertainment pullout of Kosmo!
The 28-year-old star of TV3's Dejavu di Kinabalu drama series said he was stunned by the reaction to his postings and quickly apologised for his blunt observation of the university, one of the oldest in the country.
He was at the UKM campus on Wednesday for the shooting of a new drama series when he posted several tweets that, among others, said: “Keusangan UKM mengundang simpati (The dreary state of UKM calls for sympathy).”
Also, he described the university's Tun Sri Lanang library block as rumah hantu (haunted house).
“I will be more careful with my words from now on,” he said.
