Stabbings, stock theft dominate crime report

03 January 2020 | Crime

A 35-year-old man was arrested for attempted murder after allegedly stabbing another man in the neck with a broken wine glass at a shebeen at Fransfontein settlement on Friday night.

The victim was rushed to Khorixas State Hospital and thereafter transferred to Katutura Intermediate Hospital for medical treatment.

The suspect is known but not yet arrested, while the victim is reported to be in a stable condition.

In another incident, a woman was arrested on Saturday in connection with the death of Kalenga Kalihonda Matheus (42) at Tuhingireni in the Rundu district.

She allegedly beat Matheus with an unknown object and he later succumbed to his injuries.

On Thursday evening at Nkwizu, a farm in the Kavango East Region, a 27-year-old man was stabbed in the abdomen, causing his intestines to protrude. The suspect fled the scene the same night and he is still at large. The victim was admitted to the Rundu State Hospital. Police investigations continue.

In a different matter, a 39-year-old man was arrested after he was allegedly found in possession of 18 stolen goats and one carcass on Saturday morning at Okolo village near Tsintsabis.

It is further alleged that 26 goats had gone missing at a farm in the area on 6 December.

The accused appeared before the Tsumeb Magistrate's Court on Monday and police investigations continue.

In another case, two men aged 25 and 26 year were arrested after they were caught leading a Brahman bull from one grazing area to another.

The incident occurred last week Wednesday at Springbok Municipality Camp in the Karibib district. The bull was recovered. The suspects appeared before court at Karibib on Monday and the police investigation continues.
