W/R: Two St. Mary’s students in critical condition after robbery attack

Two students of St. Mary’s Boys Senior High School in the Western Region have been hospitalised at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital after sustaining severe cutlass wounds in the head, during a robbery attack at their dormitory this dawn.

The victims are yet to be identified.

According to the Chair of the Parents Teachers Association for the school, Mr. Barima Twum, they [victims] were rushed on an ambulance that dawn to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, where they were referred for emergent attention at Cape Coast Teaching Hospital.

The current state of these students are yet to be determined, as authorities of the school engage the parents on the situation. The police have also been informed and investigations underway.

Mr Barima suspects some violent group in the Apowa community [host community of the school] to be the assailants.

He said this has been a recurring issue but “this is more deadly”.
