Earlier the prosecutor, Superintendent Kweku Bampah told the court that the complainant, Joan is a cleaner and lives at Dzorwulu, while Daniel is a Mason living at Ayigbe Town-Dzorwulu.

He said on January 15, at about 0520 hours at Shiashi, Daniel together with his accomplice, armed with a knife, and an iron rod, attacked and robbed the complainant.

Supt Bempah said they hit the complainant’s head with the iron rod and also stabbed her right arm with the knife and bolted.

After the attack, the complainant attended the hospital and was treated and discharged on the same day, and lodged a complaint at the Airport Police Station.

He told the court that on January 25, the complainant identified Daniel who was arrested and detained at the Kotobabi Police Station, and later transferred to the Airport police for investigations.
