A 24 year old Mason, Godwin Tetteh, alias Bashiru, has been remanded into police custody by The Odumase Krobo Circuit Court for robbery and rape charges.

According to Graphic Online, Tetteh, who was well composed and showed no sign of remorse  pleaded not guilty to the two charges levelled against him, adding “My Lord, I even don’t know the complainant or the husband, let alone committing the crime I am accused of”.

The prosecutor, Chief Inspector John Akuetteh, told the court, presided over by Mr Asmah Akwasi Asiedu,  that both the  complainant  and the accused resided at Salem, a suburb of Odumase Krobo

He said on February 8, 2015, at about 9p.m., the complainant and her husband, Francis Terkpertey Terkper, were attacked and robbed by Tetteh and his accomplice who is on the run. 

According to the prosecutor, the two attackers, masked and wielding a gun and a cutlass, entered  the complainants  room after firing a shot outside and  collected  their four mobile phones  valued at  GH¢500.00

C/Insp  Akuetteh said the robbers not satisfied with their loot, dragged the complainant and her husband to an uncompleted building within the premises and  raped the complainant in turns in the presence of her husband with a gun pointed at him. 

The complainant later reported the incident to the police and she was issued with a medical report forms to attend hospital for treatment.

C/Insp Akuetteh  said when the police visited the crime scene, they retrieved  one BB32g cartridge which the complainant claimed Tetteh and his accomplice fired. 

Later, the complainant assisted by others arrested Tetteh and took him to the station, where he was rearrested and detained.

During interrogation, Tetteh denied the charges levelled against him. 

Meanwhile, efforts are  being made by the police to arrest his accomplice.
