MIRI, Sept 12: A 74-year-old man lodged a police report yesterday after his 27-year-old son walloped his own mother by banging her head with a mobile phone.

The alleged incident reportedly happened around 1pm at a house in Taman Tuan Abdul Rahmaan, Lambir, here on Monday (Sept 10).

According to sources, the youth turned violent after his mother refused his demand for money.

It is believed that this was not the first time such an incident had occurred, which prompted the fed-up septuagenarian to narrate to the police that his son had been frequenting an online gambling den near their house; and ever since then, he had always been asking for money.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, a 25-year-old housewife sustained injuries on her back after her husband allegedly hit her with a wooden board.

The incident was said to have occurred at the couple’s house in Kampung Piasau Utara on Tuesday (Sept 11) morning at about 6am.

According to sources, the husband suddenly hit the complainant with the board when she woke up. It was believed the couple had a quarrel a day earlier.

The injured woman later lodged a police report. — DayakDaily
