Man arrested for whacking wife on head with golf club

Date Posted: 2003-06-07

Police arrested a 70-year-old man Sunday in Nakagusuku, then charged him with hitting his wife over the head with a golf club. Although the woman suffered a cut on her head she escaped a serious injury.

According to investigators, the man had approached his wife from behind while she was tending her vegetable garden, and hit her on the head. He reportedly told police he wanted to kill his wife, and wanted to die himself too.

The couple's son, who had been inside the house, heard his mother screaming for help and rushed to the field and managed to wrangle the golf club away from his father. The son then called the police.

Neighbors told investigators the couple had always had a stormy relationship with frequent violent fights that had required police intervention several times in the past.
