An unidentified woman at Assin Dansame in the Assin North Municipality in the Central region, who allegedly poured hot palm nut soup on the Praso Police Commander, Supt. Isaac Tetteh during a feud in the area, has been arrested.
The suspect, who bolted after committing the crime, was arrested at the Assin Fosu Lorry Park in an attempt to flee the area on Saturday.
The incident happened on Friday when the Commander and his team visited the town to mediate a feud between residents of Assin Dansame and some community workers who had visited the town.
The police, therefore, went to ensure calm and arrested some suspects but in the process, the unknown lady, who was obstructing them from carrying out their lawful duty, poured the hot soup on the police officer.
