A jobless drunk repeatedly punched his wife in the face for not coming home at night - just because she had been working the late shift, reported Kosmo!
His 43-year-old wife, who worked as a cleaner in a budget hotel in Miri, sustained injuries on her forehead due to his beating.
The woman was about to complete her shift at about 9am on Wednesday when her husband suddenly turned up drunk at the hotel.
A source said the man immediately began scolding his wife, accusing her of being a prostitute because she had not come home that night.
The woman, it was reported, had in fact informed her husband earlier that she was working the late shift.
"She tried explaining to him but he suddenly became violent and started punching her several times on her forehead," said the source.
Miri OCPD Asst Comm Gan Tian Kee confirmed the incident.
