Wife stabbed, husband commits suicide

20 August 2019 | Crime

A woman is in a critical condition after she was stabbed several times, allegedly by her husband, who then committed suicide in the Ohangwena Region.

The incident occurred at Etambo village in the Epembe constituency on Saturday.

The woman was transported to the Onandjokwe hospital, where she is in a critical condition. After the stabbing incident, the husband was found hanging from a tree with a rope around his neck.

The deceased was identified as Immanuel Nehale.

The police said it is not known what prompted the stabbing.





In another incident, a 21-year-old man was killed on Sunday in a brawl over a comb inside the Keetmanshoop police station holding cells.

The fight started with some insults and then turned physical.

The police officers on duty went to the cells when they heard noises and found one of the inmates, Ernesto Jahrs, injured.

He was immediately taken to hospital, but was pronounced dead. Jahrs had been detained for assault by threat.

In another incident, a mentally challenged woman was raped on Friday in Mariental.

According to the police, the suspect apparently lied to the victim, saying he would take her to her caregiver, but then dragged her into a house and raped her.

The suspect has not been arrested.

In a separate incident, a 24-year-old woman was raped, allegedly by an 18-year-old man, in the Otjomuise area on Saturday. The suspect was arrested.

Another rape case was reported at Okuryangava in Wanaheda on Sunday, when a 20-year-old man allegedly raped a 15-year-old girl. The suspect has been arrested.

In another incident, a woman was raped in the presence of her child and mother, when a man broke into their home on Friday in Wanaheda.

According to the police the incident took place in Kariba Street in the Goreangab Dam area, when the three victims were overpowered by the suspect, who broke into their house while they were sleeping.







The man threatened them with a gun and then raped the woman.



The suspect wore a balaclava to cover his face and was armed with a firearm and knife. He demanded money from the victims and later took a TV and two cellphones valued at more than N$29 000. No arrest has been made.







Crash claims seven



Seven people were killed in an accident on Sunday along the Trans-Kalahari road near the Otjivero Dam.



A Ford Bantam bakkie travelling from Gobabis towards Windhoek collided with a fuel tanker that was driving in the opposite direction.



According to the police, the driver of the bakkie apparently swerved into the oncoming lane and collided with the loading box of the tanker. Six bakkie passengers died on the scene and another died in a Gobabis hospital.



The tanker driver was treated for shock. Both drivers were tested for alcohol and the driver of the bakkie tested positive and was arrested. He was admitted to the Windhoek Central Hospital.



Several other culpable homicide cases involving negligent driving and driving without a licence were also reported over the weekend.
