Two fingers of Miss Rosemary Klutse, a 17-year-old former student of Accra Girls Secondary School, were slashed with a knife by two mobile phone snatchers at the Adenta SDA Junction last Tuesday.

Miss Klutse had gone to the junction in the evening to buy units for her mobile phone. When she was returning home, the two young men stopped by her on a motorbike and asked her to surrender the phone.

She told the GNA that she refused to hand over the phone and instead threw it into a nearby bush.

Miss Klutse said her action infuriated the thieves who used the sharp knife to slash two fingers on her left hand and escaped.

She bled profusely and was rushed to the 37 Military Hospital by onlookers where she was treated.

The Adenta District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police Yao Tettegah confirmed the story to the GNA and said efforts were being made to apprehend the culprits and asked the public to co-operate by giving out the needed information.
