Student chops teenager with machete
A student who was returning home from school on Monday attacked a 17-yearold boy with a machete. The suspect was walking with his girlfriend when several teenagers rushed towards him with a piece of wood. The student ran away before pulling out a machete from his school bag and chopping one of the teenagers. The victim suffered a head injury and cuts along his left upper arm and left palm. Reports indicate that a lot of blood was seeping from the wounds. The victim whose left eye also swelled up was rushed to the hospital. The victim told the police that he got caught in an argument with a boy called George and that the argument turned into a brawl. The suspect then showed up and held the victim so that George could beat him up. A passer-by intervened and ended the fight. But that was not the end of it because the victim called 2 cousins and told them what had happened. They then decided to ambush and beat up the student after school. After the suspect had chopped the victim he fled the scene. The victim told the police where they could find George. George was arrested on Monday but the suspect is still at large. The suspect’s girlfriend told the police that the victim and his relatives attacked her after the chopping incident because she could not tell them the whereabouts of her boyfriend. She claimed that she was slapped and punched by a mob. The young lady also needed medical treatment.
