Man slashes former neighbour
By LEONARD PHANG
KUCHING: His past caught up with Abang Dzulhafizan, 25, from Kampung Rampangi when he was attacked by a former neighbour.
Dzulhafizan said he used to live in Bandar Semariang Baru, but because his neighbour was constantly picking on him, his father decided that the family move out.
But about 9pm on Sunday, while Dzulhafizan was drinking with two friends at Bandar Semariang Baru, his former neighbour suddenly appeared on the scene wielding a samurai sword.
Dzulhafizan said the neighbour swung the sword at him and he ducked.
He said the sword missed his head but caught his right cheek, creating a gaping wound that required 10 stitches.
Dzulhafizan was brought to the Sarawak General Hospital by his father who also helped him to lodge a police report at Simpang Tiga on the matter.
Later, however, Dzulhafizan withdrew the report saying he was giving his former neighbour a chance to explain himself.
Meanwhile, a policewoman has lodged a police report against a teacher of a nursery school whom she claimed had physically and mentally abused her three-year-old daughter.
The policewoman known only as Norsita, 36, said last Thursday morning she noticed her daughter Hilda had swells and lumps on her hands and ears.
When Norsita asked her eldest daughter, who is 10 years old, she was told that Hilda often cried whenever she was in the changing room of the nursery while in the company of one particular teacher.
According to the 10-year-old, the teacher was in the habit of scolding children and getting them to wash plates and carry items.
Norsita said she went to the nursery last Saturday and met with some teachers who said they knew of the teacher’s peculiar habit.
The nursery operator, however, claimed she had no inkling of the teacher’s abusive nature.
A police report was lodged at Sekama police station.
