A drug addict beat up his mother with a broom because she prepared his breakfast late, reported Kosmo!.
The 35-year-old man was allegedly already angry that he did not have the money to buy drugs, during the 11.15am incident on Tuesday at Kampung Pengkalan Bongor, Kepala Batas in Seberang Perai.
North Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said that the suspect started throwing a fit and shouting at his mother after finding out that his breakfast would be late.
"The suspect hit his mother on her head and body. He then threw a plastic chair at his younger brother," said Asst Comm Noorzainy.
The mother claimed that she could no longer tolerate the behaviour of her son, who would be violent every time she did not give him money to buy drugs, he added.
"Her husband and her other children are also fearful of him and can't stand his behaviour," he said.
He said that both the suspect's mother and younger brother had received treatment at the Kepala Batas Hospital.
