MIRI, Oct 5: An elderly couple, in their 70s, had to flee from their home in RPR Batu 6 here on Friday (Oct 4) after their son ran amok while armed with a machete.
In the 7am incident, the son, in his early 40s, lost his temper after his father refused to give him money.
Enraged, the son went into the kitchen and grabbed a machete.
Feared for their safety, the couple quickly left the house and went to lodge a police report.
According to sources, the parents suspect that the son wanted the cash to buy drugs.
Aware of his addiction, they refused to his demand which allegedly caused the son to go berserk.— DayakDaily
