A 14-year-old girl whose name has been given as Cynthia Atseyo has reportedly been physically assaulted by a neighbor.
The incident occurred in Dzemeni, a fishing community in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region, at around midnight on Wednesday, February 13, 2019.
According to Madam Korkor Atseyo, mother of the victim, she noticed blood stains on her daughter's clothes.
Upon examination , she discovered deep wounds on both left and right wrists as well as her back.
Due to her inability to speak, Cynthia was unable to give an account of what had happened to her.
Madam Korkor said she was shocked and called for help from a neighbor, Mary and the assemblyman of the community, Thomas.
She said Mary and Thomas advised her to take the victim to the E.P. Clinic at Dzemeni while they traced the drops of blood and footsteps to the scene where Cynthia was assaulted.
The footsteps and blood drops led to the shop of the suspect (whose name is yet to be identified), where the suspect claims the victim attempted to steal.
Officilas at the EP Clinic referred the case to Peki government hospital where she is currently receiving treatment.
The suspect later opened up to Thomas that she is responsible for the action even though it is unclear exactly what she did to Cynthia.
The case has since been reported at the Kpalime Duga police station.
