07 May 2019 | Crime

A 45-year-old woman was beaten, kicked and shot with a bow and arrow this weekend.

The incident took place on Friday at the Omeyatahekele cuca shops in the Epembe constituency of the Ohangwena Region.

According to the police the woman's son allegedly assaulted her. The suspect has not been arrested yet.

On Saturday, a 28-year-old man sustained serious head injuries when he was hacked with an axe at Swakopmund's DRC informal settlement.

The victim allegedly failed to pay back N$4 200 that he owed to the suspect, a 46-year-old man. As a result the suspect went to the victim's house and took a generator belonging to him. A fight ensued, during which the victim was hacked with an axe. He was transferred from the Swakopmund State Hospital to the Katutura State Hospital in Windhoek. The suspect was arrested.

In another incident on Saturday, a 19-year-old woman was raped at Koës. The suspect, a 27-year-old man, has been arrested.

In Khomasdal, a 37-year-old man was shot in both legs at a bar on Saturday.

According to the police the victim and a friend had gone to the bar to buy cigarettes. Another man who was at the bar went into a house and returned with a gun. The victim's friend fled when he saw the man with the gun, but the victim remained standing.

The 33-year-old suspect shot him twice, hitting him in the legs. The suspect was detained for questioning.

A car crash on the B2 road between Karibib and Okahandja claimed the life of a 57-year-old man, while a nine-year-old girl sustained serious injuries.

It is alleged that the driver, Francis Kawana, lost control over the vehicle and it veered off the road, crashed into the barrier of a bridge and overturned.

Two people were killed and another was seriously injured in an accident just outside Windhoek on Sunday. The Polo GTS overturned on the B1 road between Windhoek and Rehoboth. The deceased were identified as Maeve-Rick Karl Gilley (25) and a man identified only as Romeo.

On Friday, a woman was killed when a car overturned on the main road between Rosh Pinah and the Tutungeni location. Another passenger was slightly injured, while the driver sustained serious injuries and was transferred to Lüderitz State Hospital. The deceased was identified as Hanna Gideon.
