A 34-year-old policeman assaulted his girlfriend with an iron rod after she was accused of cheating on him in Bandar Puchong Jaya on 4 December
The suspect then damaged three cars belonging to the victim, her daughter, and her son-in-law
The victim was also beaten with an iron rod by the suspect.
The victim was brought to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre for treatment, and her daughter - who witnessed the incident - lodged a police report
"The suspect was arrested and preliminary investigations found that he acted out of jealousy when the victim was having a relationship with another man," Razali said.
A urine test showed that the suspect tested positive for methamphetamine.
The case is now being investigated under Section 326 of the Penal Code and Section 15 of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
