A woman bit her 43-year-old husband in a fit of jealousy, accusing him of loving their baby more than her.
Harian Metro quoted a police source as saying that the couple was awakened by the cries of the baby in the middle of the night at their home in Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.
"Upon hearing the baby crying, the husband tried to soothe the baby and put him back to sleep."
"Somehow, his actions angered the wife and they started to argue," he said.
The woman then began to hit and claw at her husband's face.
"The husband sought treatment at a clinic before making a police report at the Sri Petaling police station," he said.
When contacted, a police spokesman said they had received the report and the case was being investigated.
