A squabble between a married couple turned violent when the husband tried to run down his wife with his car twice before beating her up, reported Harian Metro.
During the 6.30pm incident on Monday, the couple had a misunderstanding outside their house in Taman Melawati, Ampang, leading to the suspect losing his temper.
He then rushed into his car and tried to ram the victim who is in her fifties.
She managed to dodge the vehicle at both of her husband's attempts to run her down and fled into the house.
A police source told the daily that the suspect followed the victim into the house and started hitting her face and neck.
"The suspect is said to have assaulted the victim relentlessly despite her pleas for help. He left the house without regard for his wife who was in pain," he said.
The victim, who suffered bruises on her face and body, lodged a police report at the Taman Melawati police station.
