An 18-year-old Ghanaian lady living in Royston, Hertfordshire, in the United Kingdom, Princess Owusu Ansah, was sentenced to three years in prison for pouring boiling water on a friend who allegedly slept with her boyfriend.
Owusu-Ansah filmed herself attacking her friend after accusing her of sleeping with her boyfriend in a Snapchat video that quickly went viral.
According to Hollywood Unlock on Wednesday evening, in the video, her friend was screaming under a blanket as Owusu-Ansah grabbed a kettle of boiling water and threw it over her.
She poured hot water on her friend, who was still screaming under the blanket. Owusu-Ansah then pulled out a silver knife and threatened to stab her.
Local authorities launched an investigation after a concerned citizen saw the terrifying video on Snapchat and alerted them to the crime of Owusu-Ansah assaulting her friend.
Subsequently, they arrested her on February 5. While appearing in custody at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on February 6, Owusu-Ansah went on to plead guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent, criminal damage, and theft at the Inner London crown court.
Owusu-Ansah was held in custody until her sentencing on May 9, when she was sentenced to three years in prison.
