    Man to learn fate for threatening mother with machete

    Fadley Faisal

    A 38-year-old local man will learn of his fate on July 9 for making an armed threat to his mother.

    Mohd Alizul bin Ahmad pleaded guilty to the charge before Intermediate Court Judge Pengiran Masni binti Pengiran Haji Bahar on June 16.

    Prosecutor Atiyyah Abas revealed that the incident started out when the defendant was fishing at Kampong Pekilong on May 14.

    He received a voice message from his former wife, telling him that she had been kicked out of the house by the defendant’s mother.

    The defendant immediately returned home in Kampong Peramu to find his former wife missing.

    He looked for her at another house in Kampong Sungai Kebun to no avail.

    It was by night time that the defendant’s former wife told him that she was in Kampong Lumapas.

    The defendant made his way to his mother’s house.

    He found his mother in the bedroom and confronted her, when she denied the claims.

    The defendant grew angry on hearing this, grabbed a machete and pointed the weapon to his mother’s face and said in Malay, “I will kill you, if my wife doesn’t return, we will both die together.”

    He then chased her around the house which made the victim run to her neighbour’s house to hide in the kitchen.

    The defendant waited outside until a friend came over and calmed him, and he eventually left the scene.

    The victim filed a police report which led to the defendant’s arrest.
