Teacher hits lover in front of pupils
KUALA TERENGGANU: A teacher assaulted his girlfriend, who is also a teacher, in full view of her students after he suspected that she was cheating on him.
The 26-year-old allegedly assaulted the woman on two occasions in front of the students, threatened her at knife-point and stalked her when she was conducting classes at a primary school in Batu Rakit.
The victim, who is also 26, decided she had had enough and lodged a police report on Tuesday.
State CID chief Asst Comm Mohd Fauzi Abduri said that on Oct 26, the teacher invited the woman for lunch after classes to settle matters between them.
However, he stopped his car at Gong Badak stadium and started to hit her, causing the victim to suffer bruises.
He said since then, the teacher continuously intimidated the woman, pressuring her to reveal who she was seeing. He also assaulted the victim in her school compound.
ACP Mohd Fauzi said on Tuesday, the teacher again invited the woman for an outing but she refused to get into his car.
This angered the man who then dragged the victim into his car.
However, she managed to escape with a colleague’s help and lodged a police report in Batu Rakit.
He said based on the report, police detained the teacher at his home in Kamung Beladau Kolam here on Tuesday.
