A young woman was arrested on Saturday and charged for allegedly biting off her friend's lower lip during a fight in Manjai Kunda.

The victim, Ndey Mbacke, lost a part of her lower lip after she was attacked by Tima Njie over allegations by Tima that Ndey was spreading false rumors about her.

One of their neighbors, who witnessed the fight, disclosed: "They were friends, but Ndey is Senegalese. Time invited her over to The Gambia to stay with her."

"While they were living together, Ndey met a European man and she moved out of Tima's apartment to rent her own apartment in the same compound. This was when they started having problems."

The neighbor added: "Tima attacked her biting off part of her lower lip which fell on the ground."

According to her, Ndey started bleeding profusely and was rushed to the hospital, while Tima was arrested and taken to the Manjai Police Station. She was charged and later released on bail.

Tima is yet to appear in court.
