A Kumasi High Court has remanded a taxi driver into prison custody for allegedly raping a 90-year old visually impaired woman at Nyamebekyere; a suburb of Obuasi.

The suspect Peter Kwaku Anto is said to have sneaked into the room of the old woman, who stays alone at night to rape her.

The prosecutor of the case, Nana Konadu Owusu Banahene told the court; Anto and the victim became friends after assisting her to secure her National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) Card from the scheme’s office in Obuasi in 2014.

Nana Banahene also established that based on this friendship, Anto started visiting the victim occasionally after work.

However, the victim began complaining to her daughter that she had not been sleeping well as someone had been entering her room and been forcibly sleeping with her.

Consequently, she said on June 18, 2015, the complainant decided to spend the night with the victim at her place at Nyamebekyere.

According to the prosecutor, while the two women were asleep, Anto forcibly pushed the door opened which made the daughter of the victim raise an alarm of an impending robbery. 

Anto responded by saying that he was not a thief but had only brought the victim’s NHIS card to her but was unable to produce the card when interrogated.

Nana Banahene further explained that the victim was able to identify the voice of the accused person as the man who has been sneaking into her room at night to rape her.

Anto was however arrested a day after at a family gathering where he had brought some elders to plead on his behalf.

Medical examination conducted on the victim showed signs of rape and syphilis and has been put on medication.

Meanwhile counsel for the accused, Sam Gaborah, has challenged the prosecutor's account of events.
