The police have mounted an intensive search for three people who are said to be part of a five-man gang who raped a Junior High School (JHS) student in Darkuman.
Already, the Kaneshie police have in their grips two of the suspects who are all Senior High School (SHS) for allegedly gang-raping and sexually assaulting the student, along with three others.
Seth Amoako and Kelvin Wood, took turns to rape the 16-year-old girl, while the other people who are on the run reportedly fondled her breasts or inserted their fingers into her private parts.
According to the police, the three people on the run includes, Evanda, a jilted boyfriend of the victim, Desmond Akwatia and another person who was only identified as Emmanuel.
Briefing the Daily Graphic on Tuesday, Mrs Anita Abrakwa, the officer in charge of the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) at Kaneshie, said preliminary investigations showed that the five friends planned to sexually assault the victim after she had threatened to jilt her boyfriend.
The victim had been in a relationship with Evanda over a year and only threatened to quit the relationship last year to the chagrin of her lover.
On March 10, Evanda managed to convince the victim to accompany him to his friend’s house, which she obliged.
Evanda having ushered the victim into a room, attempted to rape her but she resisted.
He went out and returned, this time with the excuse that he needed to recharge his phone.
Evanda then pounced on her and attempted to rape her again but he failed to have an erection.
Mrs Abrakwa said Evanda left the room in annoyance after which Seth, Kelvin and Emmanuel entered and took turns to rape the victim with Evanda joining them later.
The victim claimed Desmond fondled her breast and sucked it while she cried for help.
The police managed to arrest two of the suspects in their investigations and added that efforts were still underway to arrest the others.
Emmanuel, one of the three rapists on the run was said to have videoed the incident with his mobile phone.
