A Ho-based carpenter, Emmanuel Atta, 21, was so determined to continue his amorous relationship with his 15-year-old girlfriend that after her father spotted them in town, and subjected him to a few slaps before seizing his cellular phone from him, he decided to abduct her.

With that motive, Atta turned up in the house of the girl in the absence of her parents to retrieve the cellular phone and bolt with her.

For two days, Atta ‘hosted’ the Junior High School girl in his room, and had sex with her repeatedly, according to the police.

It also emerged that Atta has been in the intimate relationship with the girl for more than two years.

The carpenter was arrested and placed in police custody on Monday to assist in investigations into defilement and abduction allegation.

The Ho Municipal Police Commander, DSP Anthony Danso, who confirmed the arrest of Atta to the ‘Ghanaian Times’ on Tuesday, said that the suspect was being processed for court.

According to the Police Commander, when Atta heard that the girl’s father was looking- for him, he packed his belongings into a chattered taxi and fled his house.

However, he said, some neighbours who knew the girl’s father alerted him.

Subsequently, the girl’s father chattered a tricycle and pursued the suspect and caught up with him in traffic.

The scene caused by the girl’s father at the traffic lights intersection attracted the police to the scene, leading to the arrest of Atta.

At the police station on Tuesday, Atta told this reporter that the girl followed him voluntarily to his house.

The alleged victim said that she bled when Atta carried the sex acts on her.
