A police officer attached to Zimmerman Police Post is nursing injuries after he was stabbed in the abdomen by his ex-lover.
The officer had been invited by his ex-lover identified as Pamela Njambi for a reconciliation talk but he turned down a possible return and informed the ex-lover that he had moved on.
"This didn’t appear to have gone down well with the 30-year-old woman who followed the officer discreetly as he left her residence. Upon reaching the gate to the apartment, the woman stabbed the officer with a sharp object before fleeing into darkness," DCI in a statement said.
The attack prompted the officer to shout for help.
"Following the 10 pm incident, loud screams by the police corporal of Uuuuui Uuuuuui! Nisaidieni! rent the air as the officer sought assistance from well-wishers who responded immediately," he said.
The officer was rescued as he bled profusely and was rushed to St John’s hospital where he received first aid before being transferred to a specialized facility within the city for further treatment.
The police officer who was injured is currently in stable condition.
Police officers are now hunting down the suspect in a bid to bring her to book.
"In view of the increased cases of knife attacks between couples, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations advises couples to seek alternative dispute resolution methods including seeking the intervention of family members, counsellors, church leaders etc instead of resulting in criminal acts whose consequences could be dire," DCI advised.
