A 40 year old woman has shared her ordeal with some robbers who have been terrorising residents of Amanfrom in the Ga South municipality.
The woman (name withheld) told Citi News she was nearly raped by four suspected robbers on Monday dawn at Amanfrom American farm.
According to her, at about 3 am after the robbers had attacked her family, they beat her up in an attempt to overpower her as they attempted to rape her.
She stated that for several minutes she was enduring bouts of excruciating pain due to the harm caused by the robbers.
“They kept beating and hitting me and I kept shouting… Yes they wanted to rape me” she said.
But for the timely intervention of some neighbour group, the 40 year old woman said she would have become a rape victim.
“So some neighbours who heard me shout for help came to my aid before the robbers fled” she narrated.
The story of this 40-year-old woman is just one of many violent and traumatic experiences endured by residents of amanfrom, in the Ga South municipality who have been under constant robbery attacks since the beginning of the year
The situation however has worsened over the last few weeks prompting the Accra Regional Police Command to pay a working visit to the area
Last Friday, 15 year old girl was stabbed in the hand after three suspected armed robbers attacked her around 5 am
The bad road network and the absence of a police post Amanfrom according to the police is hampering their efforts in combating crime in the community.
