MALAYSIA - A TV news presenter was attacked by her lover's wife and his mother-in-law at 1Utama shopping complex in Petaling Jaya last Saturday, reported Harian Metro.
The 34-year-old was hurt in the face and head and forced to take leave to hide the injuries from her colleagues.
It was learnt that the attack occurred in front of the news presenter's two young sons at a children's gymnasium at the shopping complex.
She was also lambasted with profanities by the two women who accused her of husband-stealing.
"The victim who is a single mother was confronted by the two women. In order to avoid further embarrassment, she tried to distance herself but they went after her and assaulted her," the source said.
She was treated at Universiti Malaya Medical Centre.
Subsequently, she lodged another police report at the Damansara police station for further action and to request for protection.
Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed the report and added that the case was being investigated under Section 506 for threat and Section 323 of the Penal Code for causing grievous injury.
