The daily also reported that a 51-year-old jobless man in Cheras assaulted his 74-year-old mother for not buying him dinner.
The man, who would stay home all day, relied on his mother to buy him meals.
However, when she came home on Sunday, she had told her son that she was "too tired and did not want to go out", which prompted the man to hit her on the head with a water ladle.
This was reportedly not the first time the man had hit his mother.
He was also said to often hit his younger sister, who is in her 30s.
The man has since been arrested.
