MALAYSIA - A man locked his wife in his room at home for almost an entire day while he went out to meet his secret lover, reported Harian Metro.
The man locked up his wife because he was worried that she would tell the rest of his family about his infidelity.
The woman was only rescued later at about 6.45pm when her child's babysitter went over to the house after she failed to pick up the child from the daycare centre.
The incident, in Bandar Tun Razak, happened after the wife found out about the husband's affair.
A police source said that the wife had questioned her husband about the woman whom he frequently contacted and he finally admitted to having an affair.
"The distraught wife decided to leave the house, and the man, shocked by her reaction, threatened her with a knife.
"He then locked her up in the room," he said.
The man then left the house to meet his girlfriend.
The woman later made a report at the Sungai Besi police station.
