Man beaten, threatened to be killed and imprisoned by girlfriend in his own house
For five months a man lived in fear for his life after being threatened to be killed by his live-in girlfriend. During the same period he was frequently beaten with sticks and brooms each time they quarrelled. They were then living together in an apartment near Kuala Lumpur.
In the latest incident in late July, the girlfriend threatened to stab him with a knife when he refused to buy her a new expensive cooking stove.
He was also imprisoned for 20 hours by his girlfriend and was lucky a friend came and broke the apartment door to free him. The woman crushed his handphone and took away the phone sim card to ensure the man could not call for help.
The man later lodged a police report.
