The police at Nsoatre have detained FIVE TEENAGE armed robbers, one of them a girl in the Sunyani West District of the Bono Region following their alleged robbery at gunpoint of an amount of GH¢1,000, mobile phones among other personal items from a driver.
The youth include Agyeiwaa Isabella, Vincent Kyeremeh, Andrews Kyeremeh, Prince Kyeremeh, Takyi Richard, and Edmond Asare.
The oldest among them is 25, while the others are 19, 18, 17, 17 and the girl is 16. They were accused of pulling a locally manufactured gun on one Okofo Dartey, who was in charge of a black KIA Picanto car with trade plate number, DP 7412-22 and robbed him of his money, iTel and Infinix phones, a black polish, and a shaving machine when his car developed a fault at about 9:50 pm off the Nsoatre- Berekum Highway near the Roman Catholic Church last Friday.
The complainant, a 43-year-old driver, told the Nsoatre Police that while relaxing in his car when it developed a fault, Vincent Kyeremeh, Andrews Kyeremeh, Prince Kyeremeh and Takyi Richmond appeared and pulled a locally manufactured gun and threatened to kill him if he refused to surrender whatever items were on him.
They took the money, phones, and other items and bolted. The driver raised an alarm and, together with community members, Mohammed Fayed and Collins Dartey, gave them a hot chase, arrested them and sent them to the Nsoatre Police Station and lodged a complaint. As a result, they dispatched some police officers together with the complainant to the scene where the complainant identified they rounded Agyeiwaa, Isabella and Edmond Asare, as part of the gang and the suspects.
They have since been detained pending further investigations. Spokesperson for the Bono Police, ASP Kingsley Augustine Oppong, confirmed the story last Saturday.
