A nurse has incurred a deep knife wound on her neck while trying to resist rape.
The Kano State Police arrested a 20-year-old man called Bashir Yahaya over his attempt to rape a nurse at her duty post at a clinic in Taludu quarters, Gwale Local Government Area.
The spokesman of the command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said the suspect, Bashir Yahaya, trailed his victim to the clinic, tried to rape her and in the process injured her with the knife.
He added that the victim who was left with a deep cut on her neck was rescued by one Zayyanu Abdulhamid who also suffered a knife-cut injury from the suspect.
The injured woman has since been treated and discharged from the hospital while the suspect is in police custody under investigation.
The suspect was arrested at the scene and the weapon was recovered from him. He confessed to attempted rape and when she resisted he was forced to use the knife so she could comply with his wishes.
