Driver defiles 3-year-old girl at Dansoman

An Accra Circuit Court has remanded a 40-year-old driver in custody for allegedly sexually assaulting a three-year-old girl at Dansoman in the Greater Accra Region.

Emmanuel Kyei, who is the co-tenant of the victim’s aunt, allegedly had both vaginal and anal sex with the minor on September 23, 2018, at about 11pm.

The cousin of the victim suspected that someone had inserted the fingers into the young girl’s private parts.

When the victim was questioned, she mentioned Emmanuel Kyei as the person who inserted his penis into her private parts.

The suspect is before the court on one count of defiling a child under the age of 16 years.

He pleaded not guilty and was remanded in custody by the court, presided over by Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, to reappear on October 11, 2018, for the trial.

Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire told the court that after the victim had narrated her ordeal, a report was made to the Dansoman Police and a medical form was issued to the complainant to take the victim to the hospital for medical examination and treatment.

He said the medical report on the victim indicated that she had been sexually assaulted and her hymen broken.

Chief Inspector Atimbire told the court that Emmanuel Kyei was subsequently arrested by the police.
