Three Robbers Grabbed
DRAMA UNFOLDED when two suspected robbers were identified and eventually nabbed at the Police charge office at Ejisu in the Ashanti Region.
The names of the unlucky-suspects were given as Sylvester Frimpong alias ‘This Way, 21 years old, a driver’s mate and Richmond Abban, 25, who is unemployed.
They were at the Ejisu Police Station, perhaps to seek bail, for Charles Sarpong alias ‘Gangster’, a driver’s mate, who is part of their three-man robbery gang.
The victim, a Mobile Money Merchant, was also at the police station when the two visited, so he identified them and called for their arrest.
ASP Juliana Obeng said the victim, a Mobile Money Merchant domiciling at Fumesua, was robbed by the three-man gang in his room.
She said on September 9, 2017, the robbers forcibly broke into the victim’s room and at knife-point, ordered him to surrender everything on him.
The robbers warned the victim that if he refuses to comply with their stern order, they would stab him to death and bolt away.
The visibly-shaken Mobile Money Merchant then surrendered his sales of Gh 1,700 and a Samsung mobile phone to the robbers.
The victim, who knows that Gangster resides in the same community, later on reported the case to the police who quickly arrested Gangster.
Upon a search after his arrest from his hideout at Fumesua, the police found an amount of Gh4,700 on Gangster and caged him afterwards.
Later on, the victim was at the Police Station to assist in investigations when he spotted Frimpong and Abban there so he called for their arrest.
Upon a search the police found Gh351 and Gh3 on Frimpong and Abban, respectively, the police PRO told the media at a press conference.
The three suspects have admitted to the robbery charge. Frimpong and Abban have even led the police to retrieve a pair of scissors they used for the robbery.
