robb and rapThe Upper East Regional Police Command has arrested two suspects for allegedly raping a woman after robbing her in her apartment around the Estates in the Bolgatanga municipality.

The suspects have been identified as Danteni Bugre, 30, and Baba Salli, 42.

The police have also mounted a search for an accomplice, Nabila Mohammed, who is currently at large.

Meanwhile, the police have been able to retrieve items such as mobile phones, cameras and decoders from the suspects.

Briefing

Briefing the media on the incident in Bolgatanga yesterday, the Upper East Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr Simon Afeku, explained that the robbers took advantage of a downpour around 5 a.m. on September 20, 2016 to attack the 40-year-old victim in her room.

He said the robbers used sharp objects, including knives, to break into the victim’s apartment and made away with GHc1,000, a G-Touch tablet and two mobile phones.

Mr Afeku said one of the suspects took advantage of the situation to rape the victim before bolting with their booty.

The woman had been traumatised by the incident, according to the police.

Arrest

He said on September 22, 2016, the police, with the help of the youth in the neighbourhood, apprehended Bugre at a drinking spot within the Estates area.

Upon interrogation, Bugre admitted committing the crime but claimed that  Mohammed, who was on the run,  had raped the woman.

Even though Bugre led the police to Mohammed’s abode, he could not be found.

Bugre further took the police to the house of the other suspect, whom he described as their anchor man who usually received and kept the stolen items after their robbery operations.

Mr Afeku entreated the public to always volunteer information to help in arresting perpetrators of crime in the municipality, some of whom used the area as a hideout after committing crimes in other parts of the country.
