KOTA BELUD: A 40-year-old man ran amok when his sleep was disturbed by the sound of his parents who were having breakfast at their house at Kampung Dudar, Jalan Kudat near here.

In the 7.45am incident recently, the son aggressively hit the head of his 67-year-old father with a rock before storming out.

The victim was rushed by his wife to the district hospital and he received five stitches at the back of his head.

The couple then lodged a police report yesterday.

District police chief Superintendent Mohd Zaidi Abdullah said the couple’s son was arrested at about 11am yesterday at Kampung Dudar.

“We have also confiscated the rock used in the incident,” he said, adding that the case is being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for causing injuries. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
