MIRI, July 4: Suspicious that his wife was cheating on him, a man went berserk and attacked his wife’s alleged lover on Tuesday night.

The suspect is unemployed and in his early 30’s. He was accompanied by an acquaintance.

The alleged attack took place at a budget inn here around 7pm.

According to sources, not only he was assaulted, the victim was also ordered to pay compensation of nearly RM2,000 in ‘damages’ for having an affair with his assailant’s wife.

A police report has been lodged that same night by the victim, right after he managed to escape from his attackers.

He managed to escape to Miri Central police station (CPS) which lies adjacent to the location of the incident.

Earlier, the victim’s assailants brought him to a nearby bank to withdraw the cash.

However, the victim managed to escape before the transaction was made. — DayakDaily
