Three arrested for allegedly gang-raping teenage girl

arrestThree out of five gangsters said to have allegedly gang-raped a teenage girl at Bantama, Kumasi, which act was videoed and has gone viral on social media, have been arrested.
They were arrested by a member of the unit committee at Bantama and handed over to the police yesterday.
Their names have been withheld since they are believed to be also teenagers.
The video had been circulating on social media with the five gangsters taking their turns to rape the girl who was admitted to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, after the act on Sunday.
A police source at the Ashanti Regional Police Command confirmed the arrest to the Ghanaian Times, here yesterday.
As at the time of filing the report, the three suspects were giving their statements to the police.
According to the source the police have intensified their efforts to arrest the rest of the suspects to face the law.
Earlier, when the story broke out, the national headquarters of the criminal investigation department (CID) of the Police Service issued a statement that it had taken a serious view of the incident and had constituted a special investigation team to look into the matter and identify the suspects for necessary actions.
The statement further cautioned media organisations and those in possession of the video to stop its circulation since it was an offence to circulate such obscene material.
