The Juaso police have arrested an 18-year-old girl, Mary Nti Gyimah, for allegedly causing the death of a colleague at Obogu, in the Asante-Akim South Municipality.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Andrew Anyani, the Municipal Police Commander confirming this to reporters, said the incident happened on February 5.
He said what started as a brawl between the two turned tragic when the suspect was alleged to have violently smashed the head of Comfort Frimpomaa, the deceased, against the ground.
The deceased is said to have immediately lost consciousness in the process.
She passed on shortly on admission at the Juaso District Hospital, where she was rushed to after the incident.
Giving details, DSP Anyani said, the two girls lived in the same vicinity and had engaged in a fight on February 3, following a misunderstanding.
Two days later, at about 4 pm, the suspect allegedly approached the deceased when she was preparing supper and requested for the key to the toilet, but the deceased refused to hand it over.
An argument ensued, resulting in another fight during which the suspect allegedly pounced on the deceased, gripped and pushed her violently to the ground.
The deceased’s head reportedly hit the ground so hard that she blacked out immediately.
She was then rushed to Juaso District Hospital where she died shortly on admission.
DSP Anyani said the suspect would be put before court to facilitate the process of sending her docket to the Attorney General’s office for advice.
