A 42-year-old Chinese, Chen Shicai is in the custody of the Ashaiman Police for snatching a taxi from one Yaw Koduah.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Maxwell Atingane, Tema Regional Police Commander said Mr Koduah was driving the taxi from Tema to Accra at about 0100 hours when Shicai stopped him at Community ‘9’ Roundabout.
DCOP Atingane said Shicai pulled out a short cutlass from his jacket and threatened to stab Mr Koduah who became afraid and abandoned the vehicle.
Shicai reportedly drove the taxi to Ashaiman where he lost control while negotiating a sharp curve and got involved in an accident.
DCOP Atingane further narrated that Shicai escaped unhurt and started running towards Tulaku, a suburb of Ashaiman still with the cutlass in his hand.
He said he stopped another taxi to board and while attempting to snatch it; a Police Patrol Team from Ashaiman got to the scene and arrested him.
