Prosecuting Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire said the complainant is a trader and a grandmother of the victim and together, they live at Kingsby near Achimota.

Prosecution said Boateng also reside at Kingsby.

Prosecution said on September 25, at about 16:30 hours the victim was on her way to visit a class mate within the neighbourhood when Boateng accosted and lured her into an uncompleted building within Rama Church premises at Kingsby. The accused gave the victim some drink which made her drowsy.

Prosecution said Boateng had sex with the victim on the bare floor; in the process the victim managed to push the accused away and escaped.

Prosecution said in the evening of the same day, the victim informed her grandmother about the act, and a report was made to the Achimota-Mile Seven Police, where a medical report was issued to the victim for treatment.

On September 26, the case was transferred to the Tesano DOVSU for further investigations.

Boateng was subsequently arrested and in his caution statement admitted having sex with the victim three times but denied giving the victim any drink.
