A 24-year-old sex worker has allegedly been stabbed to death by a patron at Bolakyi, a suburb of Prestea, in the Western Region.

The deceased, a foreigner and regular client of the suspect, has been identified as Kate Atigogo.

Superintendent of Police Adjei Nimo, the Prestea District Commander, confirmed the incident to the Ghana News Agency (GNA).

He said the suspect, an illegal miner and a native of Obuasi, in the Ashanti Region, was being held in custody.

The man reportedly drew a knife and stabbed the lady several times following a misunderstanding.

She was rushed to the Prestea Government Hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival.

The suspect fled after committing the crime, but the police managed to arrest him on the same day.
