Kedah Police Arrests Raging Man Who Broke Wife's Car Window With His Bare Hands
Kedah police have arrested a man for hostile behaviour after he was caught on video threatening his wife and breaking her car window with his bare hands
Kota Setar district police chief ACP Ahmad Shukri Mat Akhir said the victim recorded the whole ordeal and lodged a police report immediately after the incident.
According to Astro Awani, the incident occurred around 10.30am on Monday, 13 December, while the victim was in her car with her two children.
The wife said she was driving along Lorong Panglima, Jalan Teluk Wanjah when she suddenly realised her husband was following her on his motorcycle
The police chief said the husband then stopped his wife's car and ordered her to open her front passenger window.
"The suspect said he wanted to give some pocket money to their children, but his wife only wound down the window a little bit," said Ahmad Shukri.
He said this made the husband fly into a fit of rage and yank the car window several times until it shattered in his hands.
The wife reported that some glass pieces fell on her children, causing them to be shocked and traumatised.
After the incident, the wife had also written a Facebook post alleging that the husband has threatened her before
According to Kosmo, she said they are in the process of divorce and have not been living under the same roof.
However recently, she said he had stolen a bag of documents from her car and she was afraid he would do it again.
"If I had fully open [the window], I will definitely be trapped again like before. And this time I was even more careful because he once threatened to take the car and said he wanted to burn it," she wrote in a post that has since been privatised.
She said there were also many times that they have fought over the car keys and he has deliberately punctured her car tyres before.
The 30-year-old man has since been arrested and placed under remand for four days
Ahmad Shukri said the suspect was arrested on the day of the incident and is in remand until 17 December to aid in investigations.
The case will be investigated under Section 427 and 506 of the Penal Code for causing damage to property and criminal intimidation.
The police chief added that the suspect's urine drug test was negative.
