Woman threatens hubby after he catches her with lover
A MAN who walked in on his wife and boyfriend while they were making love was dealt another blow when the wife threatened him with a knife, reported Harian Metro.
According to the report, the 41-year-old contractor had just arrived home at 6am after work to find his wife of 18 years in a compromising position with the other man in the living room on Sunday.
An argument then ensued between the three.
The husband claimed the lover threatened to kill him. He also alleged that his wife brandished a knife at him while attempting to defend her lover.
The contractor then left the house and sought help from a nearby police beat.
Quoting police sources, the report said the husband then returned to the house with the police patrol unit only to find that his wife and lover had escaped.
Petaling Jaya district police chief Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed told the tabloid the two were subsequently arrested in separate raids.
> The daily also reported that a woman was bound, threatened with a knife and held hostage by a taxi driver and his accomplice shortly after she got into the cab in Bukit Bintang on Sunday.
According to the Harian Metro report, the woman was waiting alone for a cab at about 5pm when the man, in his late 30s, offered to drive her home to Cheras at a cheaper rate without using the meter.
The woman agreed and got into the vehicle but the taxi stalled soon after with alleged mechanical problems.
According to the report, the taxi driver's accomplice then entered the car, placed a knife to her abdomen and threatened to stab her if she screamed.
The 26-year-old woman, who had her hands tied and eyes taped shut, was then driven out of town before the men demanded a RM10,000 ransom from her family, the report said.
The family, who could not afford the amount, pleaded to have the amount reduced. They then banked in RM2,000 into the victim's account.
The taxi driver and his accomplice then withdrew the money and fled after dropping her off at a restaurant in Serdang at 9pm the same day.
