PETALING JAYA: A local actor was arrested last night for allegedly assaulting his ex-fiancée for asking him to end his relationship with another man.
Serdang police chief Ismadi Borhan said the 27-year old suspect had gone to his then fiancée’s house in Seri Kembangan at 9am on Friday.
“The actor forced the victim into his car and abused her verbally. This all came about when she asked him to end his alleged relationship with another guy,” he said when contacted by FMT.
Ismadi also said the suspect strangled and punched his 23-year old fiancée in the face and mouth until she bled.
The victim, who is also an actress, said she had taken pictures, presumably of her injuries, but alleged that the actor had erased them.
“The victim did not lodge a police report immediately as she wanted to settle the matter amicably,” he said.
Ismadi said the victim was subsequently referred to the Serdang Hospital for treatment, but doctors could not find any signs of injuries.
The suspect, he said, was nabbed when he turned himself in at the Serdang police station last night.
“The suspect confessed and was released on police bail after his statement was recorded,” he said, adding that the case is being investigated for causing injuries and issuing threats.
