Suspect remanded for alleged robbery, rape

The Obuasi Circuit Court has remanded the 23-year-old suspected armed robber, who allegedly attempted to rape a 24-year-old woman, who bit off his penis in the process, at Abompe in the Obuasi Municipality of the Ashanti Region.

The suspect, Emmanuel Arkon, was charged with robbery and rape, but his plea was not taken.

Chief Inspector Theresah Owusu, prayed the court to remand the suspect since investigations had not been completed, adding that granting him bail will interfere with the probe.

The court, presided by Justice Joyce Boahen, remanded the suspect to reappear on November 20, 2020.

The incident occurred last Saturday around 2:00 am when the suspect, armed with a knife,  broke into the victim’s room as she slept.

The police said the suspect demanded sex amidst threats of stabbing the woman to death if she refused.

The victim gave in, but had to stimulate the suspect’s penis in her mouth for an erection, and the victim severed it with her teeth.

The suspect struggled with the victim in the process and bit her back before she could make her way out to cry for help.

The suspect, whose penis was severed off, coincidentally sought medical care from AGA Hospital, the same facility the victim had also gone for treatment.

The victim raised the alarm, which led to the arrest of the suspect. -ghanaweb.com
