After that, the man locked his wife inside the house without a phone so she would not be able to contact anyone

"However, the victim managed to ask a neighbour to contact the police," Shamsul Amar added.

A team of police officers were then dispatched to the location and they set the housewife free.

After the ordeal, they took her to the police station to lodge a report.

Authorities managed to apprehend the suspect at the same location later that day and he admitted to being involved in the case

It is learnt that the suspect has a previous criminal record.

"Further investigations will be carried out after a remand application at the Klang Courthouse," Shamsul Amar explained.

The case is currently being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code and Section 18A of the Domestic Violence Act 1994.

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
