Miri – A cleaner at a budget hotel here working on a late shift was repeatedly punched on the head by her husband for not coming home at night.
The 43-year-old wife had earlier told her husband she would be on the nightshift, Kosmo! reported.
The jobless husband, who had been drinking, turned up at the hotel when the wife was just about to finish her shift at 9pm.
A source said the man started scolding his wife and accused her of being a prostitute for working late at night and not coming home.
“She tried explaining to him but he suddenly became violent and started punching her several times on her forehead,” said the source.
Miri OCPD Asst Comm Gan Tian Kee confirmed the incident.
