A case of a man who allegedly bit off the nose of his girlfriend has been adjourned to May 3, 2016 by the Accra Circuit Court.
At a sitting last Monday Isaac Forson, denied claims by the investigator who gave his evidence-in -chief that he committed the offence.
According to him, the investigator was not at the scene so he could not have known what really took place.
Forson therefore, pleaded not guilty to the charge of causing harm.
He was granted bail in the sum GH¢ 3,000 with two sureties by the court, presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku.
He, however, failed to meet the bail conditions and has, therefore, been placed into police custody.
The fact of the case as presented by the prosecutor, Chief Inspector Grace Bandoh, were that Forson and his girlfriend lived together at East Legon, a suburb of Accra.
She said Forson had been complaining of his girlfriend being the cause of all his predicament and woes.
On December 14, 2015, the girlfriend visited her friend in the same vicinity but Forson traced her to her friend’s house.
According to the prosecutor, Forson without any act of provocation immediately pounced on her girlfriend and subjected her to beatings.
The prosecutor further said Forson pulled the plastic chair the victim was sitting on and hit her with it until it got broken.
Not satisfied, Chief Inspector Bandoh said Forson then bit off her nose.
This led to her bleeding profusely and was rushed to the hospital.
The prosecution will call its next witness at the next sitting of the court.
