Security Man Defiles Ice Water Seller In Trotro

 Kofi Appiah, 20, a security man who defiled a 12-year-old girl in a vehicle at Atomic junction has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by an Accra Cirucit Court.

Appiah is said to have bought the victim’s sachet water but refused to pay for it so in her bid to collect her money she was defiled by Appiah.


Charged with defilement, Appiah had pleaded guilty before the Court presided over by Mrs Ruby Naa Adjeley Quaison.

The court on March 1, deferred Appiah’s sentence to today. Prosecuting Detective Inspector Judith B. Asante had earlier told the court that the complainant is a pantry man who resides at Atomic Junction with his family including the victim.

According to the prosecutor, the accused person is a security man who works at a car park in the same area. On February 23, this year at about 2200 hours the victim was selling sachet water in the neighbourhood, Appiah purchased one and declined to pay.

The victim, according to the prosecutor, insisted on taking her money but Appiah lured her into a parked vehicle and had sex with her. A witness who saw the victim quickly reported the matter to the victim’s parents but Appiah bolted.

The accused was later apprehended and escorted to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU). The victim was issued with a medical form to attend hospital for examination and treatment after which the report was submitted to the Police.
