JAKARTA- A man, angered after being awaken from his afternoon nap, hit his wife and children’s heads with a hammer before running amok and destroyed his neighbours’ belongings.
According to online media reports, the incident occurred about 4pm Monday in a housing area in Kampung Kalodran, in the Walantaka district in Kota Serang, about 100 kilometres from here.
Stanley was alleged to have hit his children, Marcel,8, and April,5, and then his wife, Diah, 35, on the head with a hammer, after the children woke him up.
The Rukun Tentangga head in the area, Harahap, was quoted as saying that neighbours who heard cries for help by Diah went to her aid.
It was then that the man went out of the house and began smashing several vehicles and the glass doors and windows of several houses in the vicinity.
However, the villagers managed to apprehend him and handed him over to the police.
The suspect is now in police custody, while his wife and two children have been admitted to a hospital with serious head injuries. – Bernama
