Suspected robbers armed with pump action guns, yesterday attacked a household at Tanoso New Site, in Kumasi, and injured a middle-aged woman, who was hit in the eye by a pellet.

The woman, identified only as Sister Animah, was hit by the pellet when the robbers resorted to erratic gunshots after they entered her room, at about 1:45 a.m., on Monday.

Eye-witnesses told The Ghanaian Times that the group, numbered about four, did not take anything from the room after the shooting incident.

According to some eye witnesses, one of the suspected robbers was heard shouting “I think it is not the house”, as they escaped from the scene.

Some residents rushed the victim to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where she is receiving treatment.

A source at the Tanoso Police confirmed the incident to The Ghanaian Times, saying the police had seen some blood soaked materials in the room of the victim.

The source gave assurance the police would intensify their search to arrest the suspects.
