From Kwame Asare Boadu, Kumasi

A LARGE number of people at the Kumasi Central Market looked on in utter shock when two young women using blades, inflicted wounds on a 24-year-old shop attendant and bit her left breast.
One of the assailants identified as Wasila alias Princess, was arrested but the other, whose name was given as Jemai is on the run and police have mounted a search for her.
The victim, Adisa Ahmed, was rushed to the Manhyia Hospital, but was transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for further medical examination.
Narrating her ordeal to The Mirror, Adisa expressed shock about the attack, especially as she had no problems with the two ladies.
According to her, the women had beaten up her junior sister the previous day when she was not present.
She stated that she never said anything about the attack on her sister and wondered why the two turned on her later.
Adisa recalled however that about a year ago, Wasila’s mother threatened to harm her (Adisa), something she reported to the police.
Since then, the case had been pending at the Ashanti New Town Court.
Adisa appealed to the police to speed up investigations into the attack to ensure that justice took its course.
Meanwhile, the Zongo police says they are doing everything possible to put the suspect before court.
