A 68-year-old man, William Ofori, who resides at Akyem Osenase near Akwatia in the Eastern Region, was last Monday stabbed to death at his residence by an unknown assailant.
The Akwatia Police in the Eastern Region have mounted a search to arrest the culprit.
The body of the deceased has been deposited at the St Dominc’s Hospital at Akwatia for autopsy and preservation.
Mr Tetteh said Ms Asieduaa told the police that she heard the late Mr Ofori screaming in his bedroom and calling for help.
Ms Asieduaa said when she rushed to Mr Ofori’s room, she found him stabbed in his abdomen with blood oozing out from the wound.
Mr Tetteh said when the police arrived at the accident scene, they found a knife with blood stains on it in the room, some of the blood stains outside the room and in between two bags of sachet water.
He said the police continued to the hospital where they saw the victim on a stretcher with a deep knife wound and his intestines gushed out.
