Man trapped in room after fleeing angry wife

A Saudi man was trapped inside a room in his apartment when he locked himself up after fleeing his angry wife, a local newspaper reported on Thursday.

Civil defence units had to smash the door after the man and his wife could not open it nearly 24 hours after their fight, 'Alyoum' said.

Quoting police sources, the paper said the 40-year-old man locked himself up to escape his threatening wife following a heated argument at their house on the tiny island of Tarut just opposite the eastern port of Dammam.

“The civil defence smashed the door to release the man after he was locked up for nearly 24 hours without any food or drink,” it said.
