He said on May 13, around 0600 hours, the complainant was in her farm at Anyinam, when the accused attacked her with a stick and demanded to have sex with her.
However, the complainant refused, therefore, a fight ensued between them but the accused overpowered her.
Therefore, Madam Awortwe pleaded with Donkor and asked him to send her to a decent place for the sex.
