"On February 23, 2020, the Sunyani Police arrested one Abdulai Karim alias JJ, age 24. The suspect has been attacking, robbing and in some cases raping female victims in Sunyani since the year 2019. He usually attacks them at dawn, steals their belongings and sometimes rapes them as well. This was of great concern to the Bono Security Council and the Police and we have been working hard to arrest him and we have finally succeeded. He enters their bedroom or turns off their lights, then he attacks them with a gun or a knife. He robbed two females within two days, he has admitted to his crimes and he has been arraigned before court".

Recently the court remanded a 21-year-old student of the Ghana National College for allegedly raping a female student at the same school.

The suspect will reappear in court on March 13.
