History repeated itself when a housewife was beaten by her boyfriend on Saturday, just like the fate she suffered at the hands of her husband earlier this year in Segamat, Johor.
Harian Metro reported that the victim, who only wanted to be named as Mei, 44, said she was beaten and scratched by her 62-year-old boyfriend in the 9.30pm incident.
Mei said the suspect, whom she had met a month ago, had also threatened to kill her.
She said it started when her boyfriend went berserk after she had questioned him about a missing RM100 (S$39) she had left on the table.
"I was lucky that my neighbour heard my screams and had come to my aid," she said.
"All I wanted was a peaceful life. I didn't expect that I'll experience this with my boyfriend," she said, adding that she had separated from her husband.
Her neighbour called the police before she was sent to Segamat Hospital for treatment.
