The Cape Coast Metro Police have taken into their custody two suspects who allegedly form part of a four-member armed robbery gang at Kotokuraba in Cape Coast.
According to a report filed by MyNewsGH, the victim recognised the suspects in town days after he was attacked in a taxi on his way from Mfantsipim Junction to Nkanfoa. The victim is said to have sat in the middle of the suspects; a male and a female.
With a knife to his side, the victim struggled with them and begun shouting for help but the driver rolled up the windows and the male suspect placed a handkerchief over his nose making him unconscious.
The victim revealed that he woke up around 10:30 pm in a bush near North Ola in Cape Coast and realised his belongings including a black handbag that contained an amount of GHS3,000 and one Tecno cell phone valued at GHS250.
He spotted one of the male suspects and the woman who robbed him and raised an alarm for their arrest.
The timely intervention of the Regional Police Patrol Team saved the suspects from being lynched by the teeming mob.
