A pickpocket jumped into the Odaw river at Kwame Nkrumah Circle to avoid being beaten by people after snatching a bag from a lady.

The robber after snatching the purse passed it over to his associate who then ran off with the bag containing a mobile phone, money, and other valuables.

The man, who was alleged to be the purse snatcher had no option than to jump into the contaminated and dirty Odaw River to save his life after he was caught red-handed stealing.

An eye witness, Redeemer Buatsi, reporting the incident, said all attempts to arrest the suspect in the river proved futile.

“His ‘colleagues’ finally helped him out after he jumped into the polluted Odaw River to escape from being beaten for snatching someone’s bag,” the eye witness said.
