The Police in the Ahanta West District of the Western Region is searching for the Headmaster of Cape Three Point Catholic Primary for allegedly defiling a 12-year-old pupil of the school.
Charles Cromwell, believed to be in his 50s, was said to have lured the girl (name withheld) to his house after school on Monday, October 22, 2018 and defiled her several times after which he gave her five cedis.
It took the vigilance of two colleagues from the same school to expose the headmaster.
“We spotted the girl heading towards the headmaster’s house so we questioned her and she told us the Headmaster had requested her to go there,” one of the witnesses told Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show host, Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson.
“We clandestinely followed the girl till she entered the headmaster’s room. We peeped through the window and witnessed all the action before we raised an alarm,” another revealed.
A complaint was lodged with the police later in the evening. On Tuesday morning, the Police stormed the headmaster’s house to arrest him but he had bolted at the time the Police arrived at the house.
The victim, who has since narrated her ordeal to the police, has been given medical forms to go for examination.
