Accra, Oct. 5, GNA –
An Accra Circuit Court on Thursday remanded Philip Sackey, a 30-year-old
Community Police Assistant, for stabbing Frank Agbevor an upholsterer.

He has however denied
the charge of causing unlawful harm.

The Court ordered that
he should be brought back on October 11.

Police Chief Inspector
Francis Tassan told the Court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh that the
victim was an upholsterer whilst Sackey is a Community Police Assistant and an
electrician.

He said in July, this
year, Agbevor engaged the services of the accused person to repair his ceiling
fan, switch board, microwave oven, and an extension board.

He said Sackey charged
a fee of GH¢ 80.00 for materials for the repairs and workmanship and Agbevor
made a part payment of GH¢ 50.00.

Chief Inspector Tassan
said the accused repaired the items but Agbevor was not satisfied with the work
done on the ceiling fan as it was not functioning properly.

He then contacted
Sackey to come and put it in good shape but he refused till July 28, when
Sackey went to the victim’s shop at Pig Farm, a suburb of Accra to demand for
his balance of GH¢ 30.00.

This lead to an
argument between the two, during which Sackey drew a screw driver and stabbed
Agbevor on the neck. He bled profusely.

The Prosecution said
Agbevor sustained a deep cut and was rushed to the Ridge Hospital in Accra.

A formal complaint was
lodged with the police which led to the arrest of Sackey.

He said after
investigation, the accused person was charged and put before Court.
