A Ghanaian based in the United States of America has been stabbed at Winneba in the Effutu Municipality of the Central Region. Charles Kwesi Amissah who lived and worked in the US and has returned home after retirement narrowly excaped death when he was attacked by two unknown assailants on Friday January 20, 2023.
The victim is in critical condition and receiving treatment at the Winneba Special and Trumar Hospital. Information gathered indicates that two young men entered his compound at low-cost, a suburb at Winneba, and one pointed a gun at him only to realize after a careful look that the gun was a toy one.
He, therefore, took the risk to fight him when he demanded for his car key, but in the process another colleague joined the attack and stabbed him with a knife rendering him helpless. He attempted to prevent them from driving his V6 Toyota car away by standing behind it but the robbers reversed with speed knocking him down.
The robbers however failed to drive off because of a heep of bricks on the compound, forcing them to run away leaving the car when he shouted for help. Some neighbours heard him, rushed to his aid and took him to the hospital. The case has been reported to the Winneba Police station for an investigation.
