A man in Koforidua Asokore in the Eastern region displayed tenacious bravado during night armed robbery attack.
The 33-year old Christian Tetteh, battled the four masked AK47 and pump action guns wielding armed robbers who broke into his room using sophisticated implements.
The armed-less victim attempted to resist the armed robbers by fighting them for several minutes which he succeeded in foiling a gun shot targeted at him and his family by taken off the only bullet in one of the guns.
However, the daring armed robbers managed to overpower the victim, beat him and his nursing wife and two little children to pulp with the metal bars of their guns before succeeding to get access to their properties including GHC1,200, four mobile phones and pieces of cloths which they absconded with.
Tetteh, not satisfied with the lost battle laid a surveillance after reporting the case to the Police at Effiduase.
As part of the strategy to track the armed robbers, Christian Tetteh visited several phone repairing shops in Koforidua in search of the stolen phones.
Upon a tip off, he went to a phone repairing shop where two of the suspected armed robbers had brought one of the stolen phones for decoding and sale.
Under the pretext of negotiating the price to buy the phone having noticed it as his phone, he quickly entered his password which opened the phone.
A livid Tetteh, once again accosted the suspected armed robbers and engaged them in another confused fight at the phone shop until the Police who had laid ambush, separated them and arrested the two suspects currently at Effiduase Police station.
The victim told Ultimate News’ Eastern regional Correspondent Kojo Ansah that, even though he has been treated and discharged from the hospital, he still feels severe pains in his chest and blood flows in his sputum.
He expressed dissatisfaction with the way the Effiduase Police is lackadaisically handling the case.
