A 15-year-old bar attendant has been murdered in a fight over a girl at Wenchi, in the Brong-Ahafo Region.
The deceased, Sampson Aboagye, was stabbed in the back three times for allegedly flirting with a 14-year-old girl.
The suspect, Kwame Tusa, said to be the boyfriend of the girl, according to reports, committed the crime because he thought the deceased had snatched his girlfriend from him.
The Wenchi Divisional Crime Officer, DSP Vincent Adotey, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday said preliminary investigations had revealed that the 14-year-old girl was just a friend of Aboagye, as they both lived in the same house.
“The young girl sometimes helps Sampson at the bar but her boyfriend, Tusa, thought they were having an affair and stabbed the boy at the back,” DSP Adotey said.
The Crime Officer said Sampson was rushed to the Wenchi Methodist Hospital where he died on Tuesday morning.
DSP Adotey said the police had launched a man-hunt for Kwame Tusa, who is currently on the run.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has been deposited at the Wenchi Methodist Hospital morgue pending autopsy.
