A man believed to be mentally deranged has visited several cutlass wounds on one Kwasi Ofori in his 20s, at Akyem Akokoaso in the Akyemansa District of the Eastern Region.
According to Nyarko Abronoma of Koforidua-based Bryte Fm, the incident occurred after the mentally unstable man believed to be in his mid 30s and only identified as Kwabena Kwakye, armed with a sharp cutlass inflicted multiple wounds on the victim’s neck, stomach, hand and head.
An eyewitness one Simon said the suspect has never shown any signs of aggression which makes his latest conduct a bit strange to residents of the area.
“He is from the community but has had brain problems for some time now but nobody expected him to act that way since he is always quiet” He revealed.
Residents have however expressed worry at the recent spate of crime in the area and charged the Akyemansa Police Command to beef up their operations.
