26-year-old woman is facing attempted murder charges for allegedly pouring boiled water on her boyfriend and his lover in the early hours of Saturday morning in Mariental.
According to the police, the suspect, who is a nurse by profession, caught her 27-year-old boyfriend and his lover in bed.
Enraged with anger, the suspect boiled water and poured it on the two.
“Both victims got injured but the 27-year-old boyfriend’s injuries were more serious, and he was transferred to Windhoek, while the other victim was admitted under stable conditions,” the police report reads.
The incident took place at the Mariental state hospital nurses’ home.
The suspect is charged with counts of attempted murder read with the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act. The police are investigating the matter.
In an unrelated incident, the police in Windhoek are in search of two unknown men who are accused of sexually violating two women in Havana.
It is alleged on Thursday last week that the victims, who work as bar attendants and reside at their place of work, were raped and robbed.
According to the police report, the victims were sleeping when two men, who had their faces covered, entered their room.
The suspects forcefully took turns to rape the victims before demanding the money made from that day’s sale.
The suspects also took household items with them.
It is further alleged that one suspect was armed with a pistol.
