WINDHOEK, 10 DEC (NAMPA) A man tried to commit suicide by drinking dishwashing liquid at a house in Katutura on Tuesday, but was stopped just in time by members of the City Police.
He resisted assistance from police officers, and ran away to the Model Pick n Pay Centre in Katutura, where he caused quite a scene, before falling sick to the liquid he ingested.
He was rushed to the Katutura State Hospital for medical attention.
According to witnesses, the man ran into a house and drank the liquid after a disagreement with a close friend of his.
This close friend told the police that the two of them had a dispute over a woman, which may have left his friend to try and take his life.
