KOTA KINABALU: A man who violently attacked his wife was arrested in Penampang near here after a video of the alleged assault went viral on social media.
In the five-minute clip, the man could be seen dragging the woman out of their house and grabbing her by her hair.
Another woman, believed to be the woman’s mother, tries to stop the man, hitting him with what appeared to be a plastic bottle but was ignored by the man.
Soon after, the man was seen kicking the woman in the face, causing her to drop to the ground.
When the older mother tries to stop him, he threatens to kick her.
Penampang police chief Haris Ibrahim said a report was lodged at 11 last night and police detained the 35-year-old man at the village at 9am today.
Based on initial investigations, he said the man became upset after his 34-year-old wife went to a relative’s birthday bash without informing him.
“The man and the wife had been living separately since last October,” he said when contacted.
He added the video had gone viral on WhatsApp and Facebook this morning.
Haris said the case is being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt and under the Domestic Violence Act 1994. - FMT
