Kumasi trader charged with assault

A Kumasi trader who allegedly opened a deep cut on the arm of her co-tenant with a razor blade, is standing trial at the Kumasi Circuit Court.

Georgina Agyemang, 30, also faces charges of assaulting two other neighbours, Priscilla Appiah and Joseph Ruby.

Joseph Ruby, 47, also a trader, has also been charged with disturbing the public peace.

The two accused persons denied the charges and are on a GH¢20,000 bail with one surety each, and will be back in court tomorrow.

Chief Inspector Hannah Acheampong, told the court, presided over by Madam Comfort Tasiame, that at  about 8 a.m. on January 1, this year, a misunderstanding arose between Georgina and Ruby, who had not been on talking terms for a long time, and it turned into a fight.

Deborah and Priscilla intervened to separate them and tried to calm them down.

About 30 minutes later, Ruby left the house but Georgina still angry, chased and assaulted her and later went to lodge a complaint at the Old Tafo Police Station that she had been assaulted by Ruby, the court was told.

Georgina still boiling with rage, reportedly returned from the police station and without any provocation, pounced on Deborah and opened a deep razor cut from her shoulder down to the elbow.

Deborah lodged a complaint with the Old Tafo Police and after investigations, Georgina and Ruby were arraigned before the court.
