The suspect then got angered with the response and started beating the woman and in the process, stabbed her seriously on the head and left eye before running away.

The matter was then reported to Chikuli Police Unit where investigations were carried out and the suspect was successfully arrested on Monday.

He will appear before court when all the investigations are completed.
