A suspected car snatcher has been lynched at Olebu, near Pokuase in the Greater Accra Region, by an angry mob.
Reports indicate the suspect, Samuel Owusu, 35, was gang-beaten to pulp by the angry mob after he attempted bolting away with a Toyota Highlander.
Briefing newsmen in Accra, DCOP Christian Tetteh Yohuno, the outgoing Accra Regional Police Commander, said the incident happened about 7 a.m. on November 28, 2015, after the owner vehicle whose name is being withheld, raised an alarm that his car had been snatched.
The deceased, Owusu had approached the said owner of the vehicle, and requested to test drive his displayed unregistered vehicle for sale.

The victim immediately contacted the Amasaman District Patrol team who gave Owusu a hot chase.
It was while Owusu realized he could be out-run by the police that made him abandon the car at Olebu, on the Pokuase-Ablekuma highway and escape.
However, Mr Yohuno said Owusu, was not lucky in with his plans, and was apprehended by some residents who subjected him to severe beatings.
The body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Police Hospital mortuary for autopsy whilst the vehicle has since been retrieved by the Amasaman Police.
