The Fomena Police have arrested a 20-year-old man for allegedly beheading a man and wounding another.
Samuel Quansah, alias Kwadwo Tabi, was arrested at Ahimase, near Nzema, in the Western Region, where he had gone into hiding a week after committing the crime at Akwanserem, near Fomena, in the Ashanti Region.
The Fomena District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Mr Daniel Amoah, told the Daily Graphic that the police had information that the suspect had sought refuge at his uncle’s house at Ahimase.
According to Mr Amoah, the suspect had since been remanded by the Fomena District Magistrate court to reappear on November 13, 2013.
Narrating the circumstances leading to the incident, the district police commander said at about 9.30 a.m on Monday, October 14, 2013, an argument ensued between Quansah and two brothers.
Mr Amoah said the suspect then rushed into his room for a double-edged machete and beheaded Philip Domey, 35, after inflicting multiple wounds on his elder brother, Benjamin Domey, 37.
He said Benjamin Domey was later resuscitated at the New Edubiase Government Hospital where he was rushed for medical attention.
According to Mr Amoah, the verbal exchanges began when Quansah, a small-scale miner, accused the two siblings of making unnecessary noise.
He said it was during the exchanges that Quansah sneaked into his room for a sharp machete and attacked the two siblings resulting in the death of Philip Domey and Benjamin Domey getting injured.
He said the police were still conducting further investigations into the case.
